Ribeiro Santo Envelope White 2016 DOC Dão

Ribeiro Santo Envelope White 2016


Winemaker's notes

Clear lemony colour. Delicate aroma with notes of white fruit, aromatic herbs with a mineral profile. In the mouth it shows complexity and freshness, with refreshing minerality and citric acidity.

Winemaker Carlos Lucas


Made with Encruzado grapes harvested from Ribeiro Santo’s old vineyards and another plot in São João de Lourosa. We used wine lees from 2015 to produce this White - the fermentation of the must occurred under these same lees, including own lees from 2016. Fermented later in 300L barrels where it aged for 6 months with battonage. After bottling, we kept the wine for another 6 months.
