Douro

€22.90

Region: Douro

Produced with old vines' grapes, with more than 80 years, and new vines planted on the hills overlooking the Douro river in the Cima Corgo region, at a higher altitude. Predominance of Viosinho, Rabigato and Códega do Larinho in the new vines, where the complexity and symbiosis do not allow identifying grape varieties in the old vines.

The grapes were picked up and then selected in the vine and at the winery. Then they were whole bunch pressed slowly to allow a controlled extraction. Without skin maceration, the must rest for 24 hours, and then it underwent a slow alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats (10%) and new 500 litres French oak barrels (90%) during 6 months

It a wine in which fruit, complexity, elegance and freshness are balanced in a unique way, originating an excellent white. Produced to be consumed young, it has a great lay down potential.
