White wine made from grapes of the Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. The vineyards are alongside the river, at low altitude, and the soils are deep with a high content of pebbles. The wine has complexity, a vegetable character, minerality and the bitterness of Alvarinho.
Total de-stemming. Short skin maceration. Medium cold clarification. Fermentation at a constant rate between 14º and 22ºC. Minimum 4-month ageing on fine lees.
Citrus, tropical aromas, but with great complexity. Full-bodied, good structure and the dry, bitter finish of the Alvarinho variety.
