A gastronomic wine. with rich fruit flavors and good acidity. A batch. aged in barrels. of local and international varieties planted in our vineyards on the Atlantic coast and in the hot inner Alentejo. Characterized by very favorable growing conditions and that gave one of the best vintages in recent years. cold and dry winter. hot and dry summer. but free of heat waves. Dry September. From our vineyards on the Atlantic Coast Alentejo. the grapes from Albariño and Sauvignon Blanc varieties are allotted with Viognier grapes. from within the region. the Cortes de Cima estate. The grapes. harvested during the cool dawn period. They were de-stemmed and pressed. followed by decantation at low temperatures for 24h. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures for 15 days in the tank. which is followed by a stage lees with regular stirring. Partially aged for 6 months in French Oak (40% of total volume) until the time of bottling May 2016 bottled with filtration. This wine has complex notes of white stone fruit. melon. cashews and vanilla. The palate is rich and smooth. full of fruit and a harmonious acidity. Very gourmet.
