Ferradosa Unoaked Douro 2017 White

Grape Origins

Ferradosa Unoaked Douro White shows the unique character of the different areas of the Douro region. The grapes for Ferradosa Unoaked Douro White come from Murça, where the vines are at high altitudes (600 m), allowing the grapes to have good acidity and freshness. This wine is made with Arinto, Códega de Larinho and Rabigato.

Vinification and ageing

All grapes are de-storked before being slightly crushed by a pneumatic press and the resulting must decanted for 24 hours at 10° Celsius in 2,500 litre stainless steel vats. The must is then racked and fermented in 2,500 to 5,000 litres stainless steel vats for 25 days at temperatures between 10° and 14° Celsius. Ageing in stainless steel for 9 months.
