Dominated by citrus fruits, characteristic of the Loureiro variety. On the palate it is vibrant and balanced, with a long and lingering finish.
100% Loureiro from Marejão vineyard of Quinta do ameal.
The agricultural year began colder and with a lot of rain. July was warmer and drier, accelerating ripening and berry development. August had milder temperatures and the rain in the middle of the month was fundamental in restoring the balance of the plants. These conditions allowed for optimum ripeness and concentration to be achieved, while maintaining the characteristic acidity of the region. We began the harvest on 7 September, a week earlier than usual.
Manual harvest, pneumatic pressing of whole grapes. Cold decanting of the must for 24 hours. Fermentation at controlled temperature (10 – 15‰C), between 12 and 15 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Matured on thin lees, 60% in stainless steel vats and 40% in concrete eggs, for 8 months.
