The grapes, coming from the Douro Superior sub-region, were taken to the winery in plastic boxes and rigorously inspected on arrival. The grapes were then destemmed and pressed. The must was transferred to stainless steel tanks where it remained for 48 hours at 8ºC for decanting. The alcoholic fermentation began in stainless steel tanks and the wine was then transferred to French oak barrels where fermentation continued for 45 days at 14ºC. Ageing for 6 months in French oak barrels.
Bright lemon colour. Excellent intensity on the nose, with fresh citrus and tropical fruit aromas, delicate orange blossom notes and a marked minerality. Elegant beginning that leads to a wine with great volume and texture. The palate offers lemony and mineral notes surrounded by a vibrant acidity. The finish is fresh, balanced and lingering.
