History

Alabastro is a wine which name is inspired by a semi-precious marble found in the Alentejo region. Like this stone, we wanted to produce a wine that presented itself with strong and persistent flavours.



Profile

The 2012 Alabastro was produced from a selection of Aragonez and Trincadeira grapes grown in different vineyards of Alentejo. The Aragonez and Trincadeira grapes are produced in: Arronches (Portalegre), Orada (Borba), Redondo and Arraiolos where clay-shale soils predominate. Alabastro is produced in the new and modern winery of Quinta do Carmo at Estremoz.

Vinification: A traditional vinification with short maceration where the grapes are separately vinified in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature, to preserve the fruity aromas. After the fermentation, the wines are blended, to create a modern, young and fresh wine.
