Winemaking process
This wine results from a rigorous selection of our best Alvarinho and Trajadura grapes and the perfect communion between technique and tradition. The grape crop is picked manually into small boxes. The grapes are destemmed and then pressed at low pressure. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Following this process, the wine is rested in stainless steel tanks for 4 months on the fine lees. Before bottling, the wine is filtered and cold stabilized.

Tasting notes
Quinta da Raza Alvarinho / Trajadura is an elegant, high-quality wine, citric coloured, clear and bright, fresh with a fruity fragrance and with a pleasant and long-lasting aftertaste. It is made from a blend of our best grapes, resulting in a well-balanced wine.

Food pairings
This wine is ideal as an appetizer or to pair with light meals such as shellfish, fish, light meat dishes or salads. It is particularly pleasant with Asian dishes. 

Recommendations
This wine should be served at a temperature between 8ºC – 10ºC.

Store in a horizontal position in a cool, dark place free from strong and foreign odours or vibrations, at a constant temperature.
