Terra d'Alter Alvarinho 2015 White

Alvarinho grapes are grown on strong white limestone soil and handpicked when ripe. The grapes are crushed and must-chilled, followed by 24 hours of skin contact. The cold juice settles for 48 hours before fermenting in stainless steel at 12°C for 50 days on yeast lees until bottling. The wine is full bodied with a taught acid spine and long finish.
