Tasting Notes: It has an open straw colour and a clear, shiny appearance. An intense, harmonious wine with a surprising taste and a velvety structure. It possesses a long, fruity after-taste with notes of passion fruit, white flowers and citrus, with an elegant, persistent finish.
Winemaking Process: Acclaimed as being the queen grape variety for white wines in Portugal, Alvarinho is at the heart of this mono-varietal wine. When they reach the vinification centre, the grapes go through pellicular maceration, which is followed by soft pressing at a low pressure. Subsequently, alcoholic fermentation is carried out at controlled temperatures, followed by ageing in stainless steel vats, during which the fine lees are maintained in suspension which allows the freshness and fruity aromas of the grape variety to be retained. Before bottling, the wine is carefully filtered and cold stabilised.
Recommendations: This is the perfect accompaniment to elegant, fresh vegetable based or gratinºed dishes, starters, such as oysters or asparagus in butter sauce, or even dishes with fatty fish like salmon. Should be served very cold, ideally between 6º C to 8º C. It can be consumed immediately but may evolve for around 5 years in the bottle, depending on how it is stored.
Allergy Advice: Contains Sulphites
