Grapes


Arinto from the Azores (>95%), field blend.

Concept


On this island, for more than 500 years that vineyards are planted in the crevices of the volcanic rock, a few meters from the sea. But it is even earlier, in 1465, the arrival of the Utras, a mispronunciation of the name Joss Hurtere, a Flemishman who was Captain Donatory of Pico and Fayal, determinant for the development of wine and vineyards of these islands. We were given the testimony of one of these vineyards still in the descent of the Utras, a small plot in Criação Velha, which slopes down to the sea, in the "1st Jeirões", in a place where it gets the most sun exposure and concentration.

Tasting Notes


Citrine yellow color, iodine aroma, salt, lime. In the mouth dense concentrated attack, acidity cuts in the middle and remains until the end of the tasting, salt, salt, salt and iodine, is a "slap" of the sea.

Production


867 bottles of 0.75L.

Vinification


Produced from a 60 to 80 year old vineyard at 80m from the sea, where Arinto from the Azores dominates, but there are also Verdelho, Boal (Malvasia Fina) and Alicante white (Boal de Alicante). Volcanic mudstone soils formed 1500-2000 years ago. Harvested by hand, selection in selection table, direct pressing, decanted 12h in cold, first pressing vinified in stainless steel in horizontal vat (70%), 2nd pressing fermented in 3 year old French oak barrels (30%), without batônnage for 12 months.

Alcohol


12,0% Vol.

Gastronomy


A wine born in the sea, ready to harmonize with seafood, bitter fish (mullet, sea roe, sea urchins) but with a density and concentration to work with white meats with burnt fat, like a good suckling pig or even a pork belly.

Storage and Service


Keep at 6-8ºC, to be served at 10ºC, and drink at 12ºC.
