Characterized by very favorable growing season conditions and led to one of the best vintages in recent years. Cold and dry winter, warm and dry summer, free of heat waves, dry September.
Alvarinho and Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown at our Alentejan Atlantic coast vineyards, are blended with Viognier grapes grown inland at Cortes de Cima.
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 oak barrels and stainless steel tank, matured on fine lees, with regular stirring. Partially barrel aged for 6 months in French Oak (40% total volume), and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak complexity. Estate bottled in May 2016.
The wine shows complex notes of white stone fruits, melon, cashew and vanillan spice. The palate is rich, smooth and textured, with layered fruit and balancing acidity. Very gastronomic.
