The grapes are grown in two areas of Vinho Verde; Amarante and Lousada. The vines are on average 25-30 years old. 100-150 meters above sea level Granite All work is done by hand and practicing organic VINIFICATION - The wine is made in a the very typical and traditional way for the region. Wild yeasts are used and the wine is bottled before it is dry with some residual sugar and the fine lees. The wine then re-ferments in the bottle leaving a little bit of spritz and a cloudy appearance. No sulphur is used so malo also takes place in the bottle.
Slightly cloudy in appearance, this is a white wine with plenty of personality; it is fresh, vibrant, with citrusy notes. Uncomplicated and straight-forward, it offers high acitidy and a a light carbonic sparkle on the palate, ending on a saline, crystalline and refreshing finish.
