Roupeiro (70%) and Antão Vaz (30%)
Wine based on the ancient methodology of Talha, in search of complexity and regional identity (although it is a contradiction with current oenology), while using the crushing/pressing techniques that we advocate.
A different white wine, marked by talha, based first in the fruit and freshness of the grape varieties, with a second dimension dominated by earthy notes, almost chemical from the talha. In the mouth some texture, always supported by tension and acidity.
Continental Mediterranean, hot and dry days, with very cold nights.
3,870 bottles of 0.75L released in November 2021.
Very selective manual harvesting in 20kg boxes. The crates were placed directly in the press without crushing. After decanting, the must was placed in a 1000 liter vat with the date inscribed 1946. Fermentation then took place in a 14°C cold room for about 28 days. The wine was decanted and stabilized with bentonite and cold stabilized.
Keep at 6-8ºC to be served at 10ºC to drink at 12ºC.
Goes well with fresh salads, pasta, fish that reinforce the earthy notes like mushrooms, beet, truffle and fresh citrus notes.
All our grapes come from top quality vineyards in the Alentejo region of southern Portugal. The vineyards are cultivated on clay-limestone soils.
