Alvarinho | Loureiro
João Cabral Almeida
The base wine was vinified with an open spout, with direct pressing of the grapes in a vacuum press and clarification of the must by static sedimentation. After care extraction of the must, the fermentation of the base wine took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The sparkling wine was obtained by the classic method, with fermentation in a cellar at 14 ºC and aging on lees of 28 months, for the first batch to be savored. After dégorgement, this sparkling wine aged for at least 2 months before commercialization.
Bright citrus yellow colour with light golden nuances. Elegant and persistent aroma, with light brioche and hints of nuts surrounded by the region's high salinity and minerality. Good volume in the mouth, light toasted, complex and crunchy acidity, resulting in a long and persistent finish.
17 points in Revista de Vinhos; Brut Experience Gold Medal 2018.
