Soil: Chalky clay and schist. Vinification: After a first selection of the best vineyards, which were certified for the production of A.O.C. wines, the grapes maturation was rigorously controlled to the final selection of the best ones during the harvest. In the Adega, they were immediately crushed. After a 12 hours maceration (skins contact) of the must, the alcoholic fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 18ºC, and then at the end of winter we proceeded to a stabilization and filtration before bottling. In order to keep all the fruity and young flavours, the wine was bottled under a high anti-oxidative protection. Tasting Notes: Clear appearance, citrine colour similar to ripened lemon. Presence of the intense aroma from the grape variety, notes of yellow fruits with a good level of acidity and tropical fruits. Balanced flavour with a nice sensation of freshness and youth, citrus fruits lingering with elegance in the aftertaste. How to serve: Should be served young, till 3 years. Best served chilled (10-12ºC), as an aperitif, or accompaniment to salads, pizzas, shell-fish or grilled white meats.
