Adega de Borba White

Designation: DOC Borba
Grape varieties:Antão Vaz, Arinto and Roupeiro

Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

Winemaker: Óscar Gato

Vinification: The grapes are harvested in the end of August according to the evolution of the grape´s maturation in each vine, and in the morning so that the freshness of the grapes can be maintained. In the winery, after the grapes are destemmed and crushed, the straining of the must and the pressing are performed thus maintaining the qualitative and varietal characteristics of the must. The tear must (must which runs without pressing) clarifies between 18 and 24 hours and ferments at a controlled and constant temperature of 18ºC throughout 14 days. After the period when the wine stabilises, it is then bottled during the winter.
