1º Nome 2015 (Magnum) White

The first name defines us bluntly. No questions asked. It's by the first name that we call those who are closer to us. No formalities. This is not any Louro, this one was made by Miguel.

Vineyards
Vines planted in slaty soils, close to the city of Estremoz, Alentejo. The continental Mediterranean climate has as main characteristic the thermic amplitude that ranges between hot days and cold nights on the grape maturation period.

Vinification
Manual harvest in the beginning of September, cold pelicular maceration for 24 hours, French oak fermentation with an 8 month staging over thin lees.

Analysis
Total Acidity: 6.8 (g/L)

Tasting
Colour: Yellow straw-coloured.
Icon nose 176020a5140d2499a7f0e61d28ba9873d09e3af9dca561aeb6a91b357f650e5b Nose: Prominent vegetable notes, green apples with a slight floral touch. Without being exhuberant, show a bit of toast that gives complexity and seriousness.
Icon mouth fe9befcc324311cf7cf9e740b28462659874ebbdc4882ef64971fe9b95382c5e Mouth: Medium body with silky texture, strong acidity that brings a long, mineral finish.
Goes well with: Cheeses, fish dishes, coal grilled meats. Great with an oven roasted codfish on a family lunch.
