A quest to understand the impact of traditional carving on the production of Alentejo whites. Respect for local clay and traditional pitch, using old Alentejo carvings, but revisiting ancient texts that reinforce "open spout" winemaking, without skin contact, and which preserve the unique characteristics of Alentejo soils and grape varieties.
A different white, marked by the carving, based first on the fruit and freshness of the grape varieties, with a second dimension dominated by the earthy, almost chemical notes of the carving. Some texture in the mouth, always supported by tension and acidity.
2,927 bottles of 0.75L.
Manual harvest at night, sorting table, direct press without crushing, no addition of sulphites or any other additive. The must decays for 6-12 hours and is placed in vats of between 600-1000 liters. The vats are old, weighed down in the traditional way with a mixture of pine resin and beeswax, and the vats are between 1906-1946.
Store at 6-8ºC to be served at 10ºC to be drunk at 12ºC.
Goes well with fresh salads, pasta, fish that reinforce the earthy notes such as mushrooms, beet, truffle and fresh citrus notes.
