Ribeiro Santo Bruto Blanc de Noirs 2011 Sparkling

The Demarcated Region is one of the oldest Wine Regions of Portugal, dating back to 1908. Located in the center of Portugal, in the mountainous region ranging from 400 to 700m above sea level, has as a reference point the Serra da Estrela, the most High continental Portugal. Its name comes from the river that crosses the river Dão.
The characteristics of the wines are strongly marked by granitic terrain and the fact that the vineyards meet inserted in forests of pine and eucalyptus.

The vineyard is planted following the traditional plantation methods, in poor ground granite soils, with large rocky outcrops, where you can have a magnificent perspective of the highness of the Mountain Serra da Estrela. The entire vineyard is planted following an integrated Production System, which demonstrates a great concern with the environmental issues.

The grapes were completely destemmed and immediately pressed in a pneumatic press. The tear juice was cooled and decanted at low temperature for 24h. The fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at under controlled temperature for about 3 weeks.
The aging of the wine was only in stainless steel to preserve all the aromas of fresh fruit.
The second fermentation followed the traditional method of fermentation in bottle, which were held in cool cellar for 18 months.
