DOC Vinho Verde Alvarinho, Monção e Melgaço
Type of wine
White wine made from grapes of the Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. Grapes with high levels of acidity and good maturation, from older vines with over 14 years. It is a wine made the old fashioned way, extracting more color and tannins through contact with the skins in its vinification. A different and unique way to explore the maximum potential of the Alvarinho variety
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
Spices like cinnamon and vanilla on the nose. Quite complex highlighting varietal aromas as well as some dried fruits, hazelnut and almond. In the mouth it allows a vibrant acidity and the aromas are well present. Volume in the mouth, minerality and long finish. The touch of oak provides structure in the mouth offering elegance and equilibrium.
Pairing suggestion
Curtimenta allows balance with more complete fish and seafood dishes, stuffed crab, breaded shrimp with honey and coconut and Galician octopus with crispy potatoes are some dishes perfect in its harmonization. Should be served at 11-13°C.
