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 a month after bottling.
Segada is made only with Fernão Pires grapes. Because of that, it's perfumed, young and fresh and very refreshing. It has a touch of citrine fruits combined with tropical fruits. The intensity and persistence in the tasting reveals an excellent white wine.
It's excellent as aperitif and also complement of white meat and vegetarian dishes as well as spicier foods such as Indian or Chinese.
