Manual harvest with total destemming, crushing, followed by pressing. Cold settling for 2 days at a temperature of 10ºC, fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 16ºC. Stage in stainless steel on fine lees for 5 months. This is a fascinating and elegant style of Vinho Verde showcasing a more serious side to this wine region.

Grapes are hand-picked and fermentation occurs in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. Wine undergoes 3 months of battonage in tank before bottling. Light fresh and aromatic a great way into the white of Portugal.
