Winemaking Notes: Grapes were carefully harvested at the end of September, and transported in boxes of 20kg. Verdelho grapes were foot trodden with cold skin maceration for 3 days by the traditional method. Sercial grapes were pressed before being fermented with controlled temperature from 10 to 15 degrees Celsius. 30% of this wine comes from Verdelho that was aged for 6 months in new French oak barrels, while the rest was aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: In the glass, this wine is a citrus colour. There is an aroma of subtropical fruits, apricot, pear, orange blossom and a subtle toast. Elegant mineral citric palate evolves to a creamy flavour of anona fruit. Nice crispy acidity in a dry lingering finish.
Pairing Notes: Excellent as an appetizer, seafood and grilled fish. Best served at 50-54 degrees Fahrenheit.
