Montes Claros Reserva White

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

Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

Winemaker: Óscar Gato

Vinification: The grapes come from carefully selected vines which follow a rigorous control of the maturation before the harvesting. In the winery, the grapes follow a total destemming process and slight pre-fermentative maceration and a clarification during 18 to 24 hours.

Ageing: The alcoholic fermentation is performed at 15ºC, after which a partial ageing in French oak barrels with batônnage sur lies is performed. The grapes were monitored separately during the ageing process and the final batch was composed with the best wines evaluated during spring. The final touch is obtained by storing the bottles in the cellar for 3 months. This wine is stabilised naturally in order to preserve all its harmony and varietal characteristics. For this reason it may create a deposit in the bottle, although that does not affect in any way its quality.
