DOC – VINHO VERDE – COLHEITA SELECIONADA
WINE GRAPE VARIETIES
Alcohol: 12.5% Vol.
Acidity Fixed: 7.2 g/L
Residual Sugar: 2.4 g/L
The grapes exclusively from the single-plot grape variety Loureiro (old vineyards) were manually collected in small-capacity boxes. The grapes were transported to the winery in a short time. After pressing and prior to temperature-controlled fermentation, the wort was decanted for 72 hours at low temperature. Until bottling, the wine remained in the fine lees with "batonnage".
COLOUR Citrine, brilliant.
AROMA Attractive, excellent intensity and complexity resembling mature tropical fruits and some floral notes.
PALATE Dry, good attack with fine and balanced acidity, gives the wine an excellent freshness.
Excellent intensity and complexity hinting at mature tropical fruits, well-matched with citrus fruits. Good structure, good aroma of ripe fruit in the mouth and persistent finish.
Ideal as an aperitif or to accompany healthy dishes, not only the traditional cuisine of the Minho region, but also international cuisine and seafood. It should be appreciated at a temperature between 8-10°C.
