Winemaking Details

Viticulture: 2016 was another atypical year. The winter was warmer, January and February wetter. The spring months were cooler than normal but also extremely rainy. Then came a hot dry summer and a dry harvest period which began mid-late September, after a welcome light rainfall that gave the grapes that last bit of freshness before harvest. Fermentation: Fermented in stainless steel tanks for 5 days, with maceration occurring at up to 28ºC. 100% destemmed grapes. Unfiltered. Winemaker: Cláudia Quevedo

FOOD PAIRING
