Ribeiro Santo Vinha da Neve 2015 White
This wine comes from a single vineyard of approximately 1ha with a privileged location in front of the central massif of the Serra da Estrela. The vineyard sees snow during the most rigorous winter period hence its name. The vineyard follows the traditional vineyard and was planted in a poor granite with large rocky outcrops. The whole vineyard is in an Integrated Production regime, valuing the quality and the environment
The harvest took place in early September. The grapes were harvested manually, for small boxes of 18 kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were cooled before crushing and were cold macerated in the press and then pressed. The alcoholic fermentation was initiated in stainless steel and finished in new French oak barrels. The wine aged in barrel for six months and two months after bottling before leaving to market.
