Vicentino Alvarinho 2018 White

The Vine and the Sea
Vicentino's castes are blessfuly located over the Alentejo coast, thriving on the Portuguese sun and the Atlantic breeze.

Soil and Castes
Planted in the clay-schist and sand soils, with low production potential, the Vicentino’s grapes bear their best attributes. The low productivity imposed by the soil enhances the quality of the grapes, promoting an optimum mix of organic acids, sugars and phenolic compounds. The achievement of this balance between quality and quantity, together with the mild climate allows to aim for excellency.

Vinification and Ageing
50% of the batch fermented in 350 litres of used French oak barrels and the other 50% fermented in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 16ºC. It aged on the lees for 6 months.
