Acclaimed by everyone as being the queen” grape variety for white wines in Portugal, Alvarinho is at the heart of this mono-varietal wine. When they reach the vinification centre, the grapes are submitted to pellicular maceration which is followed by soft pressing at a low pressure. Subsequently, alcoholic fermentation is carried out at controlled temperatures, followed by ageing in stainless steel vats during which the fine lees are maintained in suspension which allows the retention of the freshness and fruity aromas of the grape variety. Before its bottling, the wine is carefully filtered and cold.
It has an open straw colour and a clear, shining appearance. An intense, harmonious wine, it has a surprising taste and a velvety structure. It possesses a long, fruity after-taste with notes of passion fruit, white flowers and citrus, with an elegant, persistent after taste.
Store and Serve Advices:
It must be drunk very cool at a temperature of 6 to 8º C. It is ready to be drunk but may evolve for around 5 years in the bottle, depending on the conditioning environment.
This is the perfect accompaniment to elegant, fresh vegetable based or gratinéed dishes, starters such as oysters or asparagus in butter sauce or even dishes with fatty fish like salmon.
