2016 vintage was marked by atypical weather. A warm and dry winter preceded a cold, wet spring. Summer was hot and dry, allowing for undisturbed ripening.
Made entirely from Alvarinho grapes, grown sustainably in our own vineyards, on the Alentejan west coast, 3 km from the Atlantic Ocean. Harvested during the cool hours of the early morning, the grapes were destemmed and pressed, followed by settling at low temperatures for 24 hours. Fermented at controlled temperatures in tanks for 15 days and matured on fine lees, with regular stirring. Fined, filtered and bottled to maintain its clean, crisp flavours. Partially barrel aged and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak complexity. Bottled, filtered in June 2017.
Refreshing notes of lime and papaya are balanced by subtle oak and minerally acidity.
