Ribeiro Santo Escolha White 2007


Winemaker's notes

Golden color. Delicated floral aroma with vanilla and tropical notes. In the palate shows a nice acidity, minerality and a long and elegant finish.

Winemaking Carlos Lucas


The harvest took place in the third week of September. The grapes were harvested by hand, 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 they decanted for 48h at low temperature. The clean juice fermented with selected indigenous yeast in French oak barrels of 500L. During the fermentation in the barrel, the fine lees were stirred (battonage) and after the fermentation the wine remained in the barrels for 6 months.
