Ferradosa Vinhas Velhas 2017 White

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 into new and one year old 225 litres French oak barrels, where it will ferment for 25+ days at controlled temperatures between 10° and 14° Celsius. The wine will age in the same barriques for another 8 months, with battonage. 

Bottling: October 2018. We bottled 3400 75cl bottles.
