Manually harvested in order to ensure the careful selection of the ripest grapes. Brief pre-fermentative maceration followed by alcoholic fermentation with controlled temperatures of between 12º-14°C in stainless steel cubes and thereby producing wines that are more elegant with their aromas preserved. Aged sur lies(fine lees) with bâttonagein French oak wood.
Citrine in colour with verdant flashes, fruity but very elegant and distinctly moreish, with floral and mineral hints alongside very slight touches of toast that makes this wine smooth on the mouth, with a good body and acidity. Smooth, delicate and refreshing. An exceptional white wine so very characteristic of the Douro.

Very versatile, ideal with pastas, salads, fish, shellfish, barbecues or simply on its own.
Recommended serving temperature of between 9ºC and 12ºC.
