Pedra Escrita 2018
Alvarinho, Rabigato, Verdelho e Viognier.
Manual harvest for small 15 kg perforated boxes, fermentation with cold technology, in a reductive environment, with controlled temperature around 16ºC. The grapes are pressed without crushing and without destemming under an inert atmosphere in order to preserve the full aromatic potential of the grapes. A great effort is made to ensure that all pre-fermentation operations are carried out with the utmost rigor, and are therefore responsible for the intrinsic quality of the future wine. The entire wine is fermented in used French oak wood and remains there after a small racking over fine lees with periodic "battonage" stirring until the final blend is made in late spring.
Wine with a very citric and mineral aroma, grapefruit notes, discreet exotic fruits and field flowers complexed by a strong minerality of the exclusively granitic soil, with a very discreet smoky. Very persistent and fresh mouth with very vivid citrus notes resulting in a very elegant set, with very fresh and persistent acidity.
