Flor de S. José 2016 White

Higher areas of the Douro, with an altitude between 450 and 500 meters, allowing a good temperature range. These conditions are extremely important to mature slowly in order to preserve the flavors of the grapes variety, its freshness and acidity.

Grapes are harvested by variety and plots in boxes of 20Kg, and put in cold at 5/6°C. After fully stalked, they are crushed. The must was subtly pressed and decanted until necessary limpidity. It fermented in a temperature between 14/16°C in vat during 3 weeks, in order to enhance the primary flavours. The wine was submitted to coerce before bottling.

Total Acidity: 5.80 (g/dm3)
pH: 3.14


This wine was part of the BLINDBOX#4
