Specifications

Types of soil

Traditional grape varieties, planted in “Chão Rijo”, the local expression for the region’s clay-limestone soils, about 10 km from the Atlantic coast and at an average altitude of 130 m. Strong Atlantic influence, with summers of moderate temperatures and strong, salty winds. The presence of the Serra de Sintra, to the south, leads to the formation of fog and the maintenance of high relative humidity. Stick and bead driving system.

Specifications

Winemaking

Harvest at the beginning of October. This wine is the result of careful vinification using the classic “curtimenta” process, with 50% destemming, fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature control (26º-28ºC) and careful pumping over. The wine was aged for a year and a half in small oak barrels. Bottled in April 2021.

Specifications

Recommended Gastronomy

A versatile wine to accompany barbecue meats, poultry, cheeses and pastas.
