Description

“TYPE OF WINE
Wine made from grapes of Alvarinho variety coming exclusively from Quinta da Torre in Monção. This wine expresses the potential of the subregion and its variety as well as the study of this variety fermented and aged in barrels. This wine is born in one parcel whose soil is a profound granite witha medium granulometry.
KEY POINTS
Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Very soft pressing of the whole destemmed grapes. Long cold clarification. Fermentation in new 400-litre Frenchoak barrels. Ageing in these barrels for 9 months with bâtonnage on the whole lees. 9 months of ageing in bottle.
TASTING NOTES
Very delicate floral aroma typical from the grapes coming from Monção wrapped on an austere minerality. Citric fruit very present along with a hint of caramel. On the palate shows a stressed acidity with a great freshness. Fruity notes along with hints of oak and a slight bitterness typical of the variety. Persistent and elegante.” – Source: Anselmo MENDES
