Description

GRAPES – Rabigato, Verdelho, Alvarinho and Viognier.

 

ORIGIN – Grapes from non-irrigated vineyards, organically grown from Quinta da Pedra Escrita, located in Freixo de Numão, in Douro Superior, at an average altitude of 575 meters. The dry and arid soils are 100% granite, very sandy and poor in nutrients. We re-planted the Quinta because we believe that granite soils give rise to wines with aromas of extreme complexity and great longevity as in the past, with very concentrated grapes and low yields. This is a tradition we want to bring back to a world of increasingly stereotyped wines, and which underlines the unique character of the Douro’s high altitude white wines.

 

VINIFICATION – Manual harvesting into small, perforated 15 Kg boxes. The grapes are pressed without crushing and without destemming so as to preserve all the potential of the primary aromas, a great effort being made so that all the pre-fermentative operations are carried out with the utmost rigour.

 

AGING – Fermentation and ageing with the addition of fine lees in 500 Lts French oak barrels until July

 

ALCOHOL – 13% ALCOHOL

 

TASTING NOTES – Mineral and citric aroma, grapefruit and exotic fruits, with very discrete and well integrated barrel notes. Persistent and fresh in the mouth with lively citric notes and acidity, in harmony with fat and well structured notes of barrel ageing, showing longevity.

 

GASTRONOMY – Matured and soft cheese of the “Serra” type, well-seasoned and spiced roasts.

 

ALERGEN – Contains sulphites.
