Winemaking process
This wine results from a rigorous selection of our best 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
Alvarinho is a monovarietal wine, citric coloured, with a fruity and floral fragrance. It has a harmonious and persistent aftertaste, with texture and maturity.

Food pairings
This wine is delicious served with light meals, fish, shellfish, light meat dishes and cheese.

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.
