White wine made from grapes of Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. The vines are more than 14 years old and have low production with high levels of acidity and good maturation. A wine made “the old way” with fermentation on skins, with more color and more tannins. It intends to get the maximum potential from the Alvarinho variety.

Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Skin maceration followed by fermentation on skins for some hours. The fermentation finishes in used, 400-litre French oak barrels. Undergoes bâtonnage for 9 months on the whole lees. 12 months ageing in bottle. 

Tasting notes

Complex nose, hay, cinnamon, along with spicy and mineral aromas. On the palate, slight herbaceous along with a mineral component typical from the variety. Great structure with a fresh acidity along with a large, evolving and long end.
