Characteristics

Concept: The grapes in the Conventual Reserva white come from old vines located in the mountains of São Mamede at an
altitude between 500 and 600 mts. In these vineyards, you can mainly find the grapes Bical and Roupeiro (Síria).
The granitic and quartz soils where they grow, give to the wines a pleasant freshness and minerality.

Vinification: The grapes are handpicked directly to 20 kgs crates, then totally crushed and destemmed. The must is cooled
down by thermic shock, open spout with pneumatic pressing system, afterwards the must will be statically
decanted in the cold for 24 hours. Fermentation happens in stainless steel vats with controlled temperature
between 14ºC and 16ºC.

Tasting Notes: Nose with citrus fruits, dominated by tangerine and lime, mineral notes, spices and fine hints of beeswax and
brioche. Mouth of a voluminous and succulent character but with freshness and tension in a long after taste.

Food Suggestions: Roasted Fish, fish stews, seafood and fish risottos, codfish, octopus, poultry and Japanese cuisine.
