"White wine made from a vineyard of Alvarinho planted above 200 meters of altitude. The vineyard, with more than 15 years, is of low production with high levels of acidity and good maturation. It is an old-fashioned wine with total tanning, with more color and more tannins. Grapes harvested by hand in small boxes and transported to the cellar in a short time. Pelicular maceration followed by total fermentation with the films. Part of the fermentation occurs with the whole bunch not stalked. After fermentation it performs a stage of 6 months in used barrels of 400 liters of French oak with regular battonage."-Winery Gold color typical from the skin contact. Strong intensity of aromas, from which stand the caramelized orange peel, citrus flowers and nuts. On the palate, it presents slight tannins flanked by a lively and sharp acidity. Attack of strongly mineral mouth, ending very long, complex and persistent evidencing nuts and citrus.
