Freixo Reserva 2017 White
The Alvarinho, Arinto and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were picked in the cool of the early morning from the slopes of the Ossa mountain range. They were macerated for 24 hours before destemming and pressing. Each variety underwent individual fermentation at low temperatures and 2/3 of the lot in new French oak barrels.
After a 4-month ageing with batonnage in an underground winery in optimum humidity and temperature, the lot was made up, filtered and bottled while still young to preserve all of its fruits and freshness.
Total Acidity: 5.9 (g/L)

|Arinto (40%), Alvarinho (40%) and Sauvignon Blanc (20%)|
|White fruit and vegetable notes of Sauvignon Blanc, light smokiness and some toasted notes.|
|A generous and complex mouth from the good maturation of the Alvarinho and vibrant freshness from the Arinto. Persistent finish.|
|Great food pairing versatility. It is perfect with fish, sushi and salads, but is also outstanding with game, traditional meat dishes and Asian cuisine full of spices and intense flavours and aromas.|
