White wine made from grapes of the Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Melgaço. The vineyards are on south-facing hillsides with high maturation and high levels of acidity.
Fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels for 6 months.
Today its complexity and excellence is the result of more than 25 years of study to achieve perfection, and over the years it has become a reference in Portugal for its elegance, class and consistency-utterly brilliant.
Careful selection of the best south-facing plots. Soft pressing of the whole de-stemmed grape. Slight settling of the must. Fermentation in barrels with “batonnage” of total lees for 6 months.
Complex, varietal aromas of the grape variety with discreet quality wood.
Very structured, with good, long acidity.
Quite mineral with notes of grapefruit typical of Alvarinho.
