This wine originates from a single vineyard located in the lower slopes of Estreito de CaÌmara de Lobos, in the south coast of Madeira Island. I harvested half of the grapes a week before they reached full maturation, thus obtaining higher acidity levels. This characteristic was reinforced by the use of continuous press in the winemaking process. In March 2008, I started the aging process of this wine by the traditional Canteiro method, under moderate temperatures, in old French oak casks. In May 2018, 2.378 bottles have been filled.
Serve best between 11oC/12oC. This wine was bottled ready for drinking and will keep well several months after opening. Light gold coulor Dried fruit aromas walnuts, pistachio, yellow fruit Jam, green leaf with a mineral hint. Fresh delicate palate and a well- balanced citric acidity. Excellent as an aperitif.
