A 100% Sauvignon Blanc produced exclusively from grapes grown at our Alentejan Atlantic coastal vineyards near Vila Nova de Milfontes.

Vintage 2018

Cold, dry winter followed by a cool, humid spring finally interrupted by a short-lived heat wave in August, which kick-started the late summer. Harvest was consequently later than usual, and short in order to preserve the natural freshness that highlights the year.

Vinification

Made entirely from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, grown sustainably in sandy soils in our cool, Alentejan Atlantic coastal vineyards.

Harvested during the cool hours of the early morning. The grapes were transported under temperature control to our winery, where they were destemmed and gently pressed. The free run juice was separated and cold settled, prior to racking with partial solids to a combination of stainless steel tanks (80%) and 1st and 2nd year 500L French oak barrels (20%) where fermentation took place at controlled temperatures. Matured on fine lees for 6 months. No malolactic fermentation. After maturation the wines were blended and bottled at the estate in Abril 2019.
