Destemming contact with skin contact. Cooled to 15ºC, the must is then vacuum filtered with perlites. The fermentation is achieved through active dry yeasts, the temperature being controlled between 16ºC and 18ºC.
After bottling ages 1 month in bottle.
It’s a dry bright white, fruited, young refreshing white with apple and lemon notes in the aroma and tasting. It’s a pleasant easy drinking wine, smooth and tasty, a real every day wine. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "It is now more distributed in the domestic market, mainly in restaurants. Very fine aromas, many notes of citrus fruit and vegetable. Very round in the mouth, the acidity is here but well integrated, it would appear pleasant consumption now."
Excellent as aperitif, it’s also a delicious complement of fish, white meat, vegetarian, Indian and Thai cuisines and as well lighter flavoured dishes, and fresh cheeses. We recommend to serve at the temperature of 8-10ºC.
