Harvest 2016

2016 vintage was marked by atypical weather. A warm and dry winter preceded a cold, wet spring. Summer was hot and dry, allowing for undisturbed ripening.
 


Vinification

Made entirely from Alvarinho grapes, grown 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. Aged for 6 months in French Oak (100%).

 

Tasting Notes

Refreshing notes of lime and papaya are balanced by subtle oak and minerally acidity.
