Terras D'Alter Reserva 2015 White

Our idea of a White Reserva is based on a batch of tradicional castes, with natural fermentation and staging in fine lees to maximize the Alto Alentejo's expression.

Vinification
Manual harvest. Some castes ferment pelicular contact after being pressed, the must was transfered to new vats (40%) and 1 year old vats. After a long fermentation with cold appeal without inoculation (natural), the wine is kept in fine lees for 8 months.
