Alorna Chardonnay & Arinto Reserve 2018
The grapes are harvested by hand and pressed whole, the resulting juice is fermented at low temperatures. Arinto grapes are fermented at 15ºC in stainless steel tanks and Chardonnay is fermented in new French oak barrels, aging in 3-month barrels with battonage. After the final blend, the wine is cold stabilized and filtered before bottling.
The wine has a yellow colour. It is complex, fresh and citrus aromas of the Arinto variety, mixed with ripe Chardonnay fruits. Good structure and balance between Arinto acidity, Chardonnay maturation and harmonious affinity with oak. Intense and very persistent.
