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.
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 fermented and aged in french oak barrels and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak complexity. Bottled, filtered in June 2019.
