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 year started with a relatively rainy winter and spring. This resulted in a year of hard work in the vineyard and low production. The summer was cool compared to the average and therefore the ripening of the grapes was slow and balanced. Despite this, we began the harvest on 8th 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.
