Freixo Alvarinho 2017 White

Winemaking

Planted in a specific Terroir in Herdadedo Freixo, the cool winds from Serra d’Ossa allowed for a slow and smooth maturation, preserving all the Alvarinho’saromatic potential. After general destemming and light pressing, the must was conducted to stainless steel tanks through gravity flow, where it fermented at low temperature. It then rested for 2 months inoak with battonage, ageing in bottle for an additional 3-month period, until all the batch was harmonized.
