Winery: João Portugal Ramos
Grapes: Arinto, Antão Vaz, Alvarinho and Roupeiro
Winemaking/Vinification: The grapes are cooled down in a cold chamber prior to vinification. Fermentation starts in stainless steel tanks with temperature control, after one third of the alcoholic fermentation the must is racked to new and old barrels where it finishes fermentation process.
Ageing: 8 months in french and hungarian oak barrels.
Aroma: Citrus fruits, such as grapefruit and lemon, accompanied by a light toast from the aging on the barrel, are very subtle and therefore do not prevail over the fruit flavors.
Tasting Notes: Crystalline-looking white wine. Highlights of citrus fruits, such as grapefruit and lemon, complemented by toast coming for the barrels but not overlapping the fruit. In the mouth, it reveals great freshness and minerality with some traces of fat from the aging on the lees.
Food pairing: The perfect wine as an aperitif with white meat dishes, cod, seafood, stewed fish and even pork tenderloin and risotto
