Courela Branco

A fresh light, young wine that is ready for immediate drinking. A blend of Portuguese and international varieties. 

Vintage 2017

An exceptionally early and compressed harvest, resulting from one of the hottest and driest years in decades.

Vinification

A blend of local and international varieties from our cool Alentejan Atlantic coastal vineyards (Verdelho, Sauvignon Blanc) and interior (Viognier). 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.

Tasting Notes

With a zestier character, it is a fresh, lighter style wine with spicy fruit flavours and a refreshing acidity.
