This wine is marked by the singularity of a rare Arinto variety grown in the height of S. Mamede hills. It is extremely aromatic and balsamic and boasts a very fresh citrus flavour with an intense taste that lingers in the mouth for a very long time.
Ideal served with shellfish and grilled blue fish and it is a very refreshing wine on its own, for the summer. Its powerful aroma even permits to have it “on the rocks” as an aperitif.

Viticulture and Enology
The grapes are harvested early in the morning, selected and separated from the stem after which they are softy and slowly crushed in a pneumatic press. The juice is filtered statically and left for a period of 48 hours at a low temperature to allow the sediment to settle.
The grapes fermented in the stainless steel vats for a period of 30 days at 12oC. The wine is transferred to another vat for filtering at 8aC before it is bottled and taken to the cellar to stay for 6 months before it is released.
