2017 Vale dos Ares Alvarinho
Vinification: The grapes are hand harvested and transported in small boxes, reaching the winery in an average of 5 minutes, preserving the highest quality of our grapes. When the grapes arrive at the winery they are subject to a rigorous selection and undergo a cold skin maceration followed by a soft pressing at low pressure. The clean must then ferments in stainless steel tanks, followed by a 6 month bâtonnage.
Color: Pale Yellow
Tasting Notes: Pineapple, passion fruit, minerality and apricot blend together harmoniously in this wine. Well-integrated acidity and fruit create a finish that is smooth and long-lasting.
Pairing: Grilled octopus, firm white fish, starches like potatoes and pasta with an olive oil sauce.
Aging Potential: Enjoy now until 2021
