Quinta do Romão and Quinta da Ponte (Runa) single estates.
This wine was produced with Arinto 50% (steel vat fermented), Chardonnay 25% and Arinto 25%, both 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 2 equal parts of Arinto and Chardonnay. 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.
The wine ages in oak barrels 9 months. The wine is aged in bottle a minimum a month after bottling.
This blend was the most appreciated and defined by José Neiva Correia, searching a rich white, elegant and tasty, excellent to share with the family and friends. 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. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "Tasted in 2014. With the lifetime it takes developed a very ripe fruit - quince, apricot - alongside resinous notes and good toast barrels suggestions which stands well. The wine has volume in the mouth, the acidity is excellent, it’s less full-bodied than the aroma suggested and, clearly, will now be in the right spot to be consumed. With oily fish, with cheese, with salads that include mayonnaise."
To serve at the temperature of 10º-12ºC it's excellent as aperitif. It complements well strong cheeses, fish in the oven, all the cod fish dishes and poultry.
