Sparkling Wine Ribeiro Santo Blanc de Noirs 2011

Winemaker Notes
Slightly salmon colour, aromatic with mineral notes, dried fruit and citrus. Good acidity, fine and delicate bubble and creaminess on the long finish.


Winemaker Carlos Lucas



Vinification
The grapes were totally destemmed and immediately pressed in a pneumatic press. The tear juice was cooled and decanted at low temperature for 24 hours. The fermentation took place in stainless steel vats under controlled temperature of about 16ºC for 3 weeks. The ageing of the wine was only in stainless steel to preserve all the aromas of fresh fruit. The second fermentation followed the traditional method of bottle fermentation, which were held in cool cellar for eighteen months.


Press
REVISTA DE VINHOS 15,5 PTS: With Touriga Nacional and Tinta Pinheira, reveals well fruity aroma, delicate and attractive. The bubble is thin and creamy, elegant, distinctive, harmonious, with light fruit sweetness balanced by good acidity.
