DOC Vinho Verde Alvarinho, Monção e Melgaço
Muros Antigos Alvarinho
Type of wine
Muros Antigos Alvarinho is obtained from the noble Alvarinho grape variety, grown exclusively in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço. The localization of this sub-region provides it a particular microclimate surrounded by a range of mountains which allows an unique combination between precipitation, temperature and luminosity required for the perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest of the grapes that will create this wine is the first to occur so that we can obtain its unique aromatic freshness.
Key points
Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Pressing of the whole de-stemmed grape. Cold clarification for 48-72h. Long fermentation at low temperatures of 14-18ºC. Minimum 3 month ageing on fine lees with regular bâtonnage.
Tasting notes
Citrus and varietal notes. Mouth attack fresh and mineral. Full bodied with pronounced flavor intensity and a vibrant acidity. Ends long and complex typical of the Alvarinho variety.
