Vinification MethodThis wine was produced with Arinto 50.0% (steel vat fermented), and more Alvarinho 12.5%; Chardonnay 12.5%, Fernão Pires 12.5% and Arinto 50.0%, fermented in oak. 50% of this Consensus was made with destemming, pelicular maceration and pressing. Cooled to 15ºC, the must passes by a vacuum filter with perlites. The fermentation is achieved through active dry yeasts, the temperature being controlled between 16ºC and 18ºC. The other 50% were produced with 4 equal parts of Arinto, Alvarinho, Chardonnay e Fernão Pires. The must of each varietal fermented in new French oak barrels from Seguin Moreau. The wine ages in the same barrels 9 months. The blend of the barrels and the other 50% Arinto was blended and bottled. The wine stays in bottle 1 month before consumption.

Consensus was very aromatic, fruity, rich, with an excellent acidity who gives a very fresh and alive wine. The end of tasting was balanced, long and intense. The fermentation in oak add a unique character and richness with notes of dry fruits well present in the aroma and body.
