COURELA BRANCO

Cold, dry winter followed by a cool, humid spring finally interrupted by a short-lived heat wave in August, which kick-started the late summer. Harvest was consequently later than usual, and short in order to preserve the natural freshness that highlights the year.

Vinification
Each parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness during the cool hours of the early morning, and transported under temperature control to our winery, where they were destemmed and gently pressed. The free run juice was separated and cold settled, prior to racking with partial solids to stainless steel tanks where fermentation took place at controlled temperatures for 15 days. No malolactic fermentation. Matured on fine lees for 5 months. Bottled at the estate in February 2019.

Tasting Notes
With a zestier character, it is a fresh, lighter style wine with spicy fruit flavours and a refreshing acidity.

DOIS TERROIRS BRANCO

Cold, dry winter followed by a cool, humid spring finally interrupted by a short-lived heat wave in August, which kick-started the late summer. Harvest was consequently later than usual, and short in order to preserve the natural freshness that highlights the year.

Vinification
A blend of Verdelho, Viognier and Alvarinho resulting from the fusion of two distinct terroirs.  Verdelho and Alvarinho, grown in sandy soils in our cool, Alentejan Atlantic coastal vineyards, provide freshness to balance the fruit generosity of the barrel-fermented Viognier, grown further inland, on the ancient clay over limestone soils surrounding the Estate. Viticulture certified sustainable.

Each parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness during the cool hours of the early morning and transported under temperature control to our winery, where they were destemmed and gently pressed. The free run juice was separated and cold settled, retaining partial solids. The Verdelho and Alvarinho fermented in stainless steel tanks, while the Viognier fermented in 1st-4th year 500L French oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation. After 5 months of maturation with fine lees, the wines were racked and blended, following bottling at the estate in March 2019.

Our Winemakers Comments
Pale straw with green reflections. Fragrant aromatics of honeysuckle, white nectarine and a burst of lime. Generous stone fruit and white florals fill the palate, developing into citrus notes of lime and tangerine, and leading into a long creamy, saline finish. Balanced by a delicate yet fresh acidity.

DOIS TERROIRS TINTO

2016 vintage was marked by atypical weather. A warm and dry winter preceded a cold, wet spring. Summer was hot and dry, allowing for undisturbed ripening.

Vinification
This blend of Aragonez, Syrah and Pinot Noir results from the fusion of two distinct terroirs. Pinot Noir, grown in sandy soils in our cool, Alentejan Atlantic coastal vineyards, provides freshness and elegance to balance the fruit generosity of the Aragonez and Syrah grown further inland, on the ancient clay over limestone soils surrounding the Estate. Viticulture certified sustainable.

Each parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness. The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed, following fermentation under temperature control for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks, with gentle punchdowns, pumpovers and delestage. The Pinot Noir was aged in used French oak barriques for 10 months, while the Syrah and Aragonez aged in tank on fine lees. The wine was blended and bottled at the estate on July 2017.
