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.
