White wine made from grapes of Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Melgaço. The vineyards are on southfacing hillsides with high maturation and high levels of acidity. Fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels for 6 months. Today its complexity and excellence is the results of more than 25 years of study to achieve perfection. Over the years it has become a reference in Portugal for its elegance, class and consistency. Careful selection of the best south-facing plots. Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Soft pressing of the whole de-stemmed grapes. Slight settling of the must. Fermentation in French oak barrels with bâtonnage on total lees for 6 months. On the nose is austere, mineral with hints of caramel. The mouth attack is frank, dry and very fresh. Long end.
