DOC Vinho Verde Alvarinho, Monção e Melgaço
Curtimenta
Type of wine
White wine made from grapes of Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. The vines are more than 14 years old and have low production with high levels of acidity and good maturation. A wine made “the old way” with fermentation on skins, with more color and moretannins. It intends to get the maximum potential from the Alvarinho variety.
Key points
Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Skin maceration followed by fermentation on skins for some hours. The fermentation finishes in used, 400-litre French oak barrels. Undergoes bâtonnage for 9 months on the whole lees. 12 months ageing in bottle.
Tasting notes
Complex nose, strong floral aromas together with hints of spicy/oaky aromas (hints of vanilla) and mineral (stony steely character). On the palate, slight herbaceous typical from the variety. Greatstructure with a fresh acidity along with a large, evolving and long end.
