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)

|The wine initially shows good floral, citrus notes, tropical mild later evolving for some minerals, more discreet and elegant notes.|
|Is fresh with balanced and present acidity. Fine and complex with a good character of fruit, excellent balance between alcohol, acidity and fruit, and a very thin and long finish.|
|Fish dishes and some pasta.|
