Quinta da Alameda Reserva White 2016


Winemaker's Notes 
Clear color with hints of green. Fresh fruit and white flowers aromas. In the palate is mineral, with a charming citric acidity and a refreshing and attractive ending.

Winemaking Carlos Lucas


The harvest took place in the second week of September. The grapes, exclusively from the grape variety Encruzado, were hand-picked into small boxes of 18Kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard.
The grapes were totally destemmed and immediately pressed. The resulting juice went to a small stainless steel tank, where decanted for 48h at low temperature. The clean juice fermented with natural yeast in French oak barrels. During the fermentation in the barrel, the fine lees were stirred (battonage) and after the fermentation the wine remained in barrels until bottling.
