Senses Verdelho

Winemaker: Óscar Gato
Grape varieties: 100% Verdelho
Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

Vinification: Verdelho is a recent grape variety in the Alentejo region’s vineyards, and this wine shows its oenological characteristics for producing a quality wine. The grapes are from relatively young vines and have yielded a balanced and aromatic wine. The grapes are picked by hand in the morning so as to be at a good temperature when they reach the winery. After crushing and total destemming, the grapes are pressed and undergo cold decantation for 24 hours, and alcoholic fermentation with temperature control at 16 oC. After stabilisation and filtration, the wine is bottled and kept in the bottle for 3 months.
