Senses Alvarinho

Winemaker: Óscar Gato
Grape varieties: 100% Alvarinho

Soil: Chalky clay
 

Vinification: Alvarinho, one of the latest grapes to appear in Alentejo´s vine population, brings out its oenological characteristics in this wine to produce a quality wine. The grapes, derived from vines which produce moderate quantities and favourable evolution for the maturation, allow us to produce a wine of great structure and freshness. The harvest was performed manually and in the morning so that the best temperature of the grape could be achieved as the grapes arrived in the winery. The grapes were transported in smaller quantities, crushed and de-stemmed, pressed and then decanted for 24 hours through the cold system.

Ageing: The alcoholic fermentation was performed for 50 % of the wine which aged in new French and American oak barrels with a strict temperature control of 15 ºC. After the stabilising and the filtering, the wine aged for 4 months in the bottle.
