Quintas de Borba White

Designation: DOC Borba
Grape varieties: Roupeiro, Verdelho and Arinto
Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

Winemaker: Óscar Gato
Vinification: In the vineyard, the grapes are produced exclusively in vineyards located in Properties of Associates, in the sub-region of Borba, which are audited and certified in an integrated production system and approved for the Alentejo wine sustainability plan. Grapes harvested by hand with a cooler morning temperature, which improves control in the quality of the must and later in the fermentation of the wine. In the cellar, after destemming and crushing the grapes, the must is depleted and soft pressed, safeguarding the quality and characteristics of the must. The must clarifies for 18 to 24 hours and then ferments at a temperature between 16°C and 18°C over 14 days. The wine is subjected to bâtonnage of the fine lees for 3 months and will stabilize by physical processes in the months ensuing during the winter.
