Quinta de Porto Franco single estate
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 wine is aged in bottle a minimum of one month after bottling.
A bright wine, very fruited, with an intense aroma to oranges, mandarins, lemons, and some mineral notes. Very refreshing in the tasting, full body, very fruited with lemon notes, and an intense and long final.
Excellent aperitif, perfect complement to fish dishes, seafood, white meat, soups, salads, and any other light and vegetarian dishes, and as well chévre cheeses and ricotta. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 8-10ºC.
