Maria Mora White

Region

The demarcated region of Alentejo is only 40 years, although there are traces of the culture of wine since Roman times, including the use of amphoras, which are still used. Alentejo means beyond the Tagus River and it is this river that borders the north region. Flat region with low altitude, it has extensive plantations of several hundred hectares of vineyards. The intense heat that is felt here in the summer causes the grapes to reach an excellent maturation, with great concentration. The wines are very aromatic and smooth and have already achieved a considerable international reputation.



Vineyards

The 60 hectares of vineyards are planted with the traditional grape varieties Trincadeira, Aragonez and the famous Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet. The vineyard is composed by several portions and it’s planted in poor sandy soils.



Vinification

The grapes were totally destemmed into small stainless steel tanks, where they macerated for 24h at low temperature, before starting the fermentation at controlled temperature.
The fermentation lasted about 15 days, with gentle pumping for a good extraction of color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was transferred to a stainless steel tank where it naturally decanted until the time of bottling.
