Quinta de Fafide Reserve White 2015
In this wine we look for an aromatic concentration and high acidity of the grapes from the very old traditional vineyards of high altitude in Douro Superior, about 550 meters above sea level, showing the full character of the varieties of indigenous Douro old vines, giving very mineral and creamy wines.
Hand-picked grapes to small boxes of 15 Kg, cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16 ºC, very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. Part of the wine fermented in used French oak and remains there after a short racking on fine lees with regular stirring "battonage" to the making of the final blend with the wine in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation and aging in French and American wood with ‘battonage’ until the filling in April.
Mineral aroma, citrus and tropical fruit, fresh and full-bodied on the palate, buttery texture and complexity provided by fermentation and ageing in barrels.
