Bico Amarelo 2021
Exuberant aromas, fresh and light, dominated by citrus fruits and tropical notes. Palate is dominated by fresh acidity, with good body and linguering finish.
Representing the diversity of the region and its main varieties where Loureiro is sourced from sub-region of Lima river, Alvarinho from Moncão and Melgaço and Avesso from Baião.
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) for 12 to 15 days. In contact with the lees, for about 3 months in a stainless steel vat at controlled temperature.
