DUAS CASTAS

Philosophy
An annual challenge for the winemakers to find two grape varieties from that harvest which combine to show a well balanced wine with distinctive character and flavour.

Harvest Year
Damp, stormy weather during the Spring period resulted in a lower than average grape production. A mild summer with cool nights resulted in grapes of very high quality.

Viticulture
Soil Type
Granite/schist rock with clay/loam soil.

Average age of vines
6 years.

Grapes Varieties
Viosinho, Semillon.

Vinification
Whole bunch membrane pressing, cold settling, temperature controlled fermentation (14ºC), short lees contact time, early bottling.

Maturation
In stainless steel tanks, on fine lees.

Chemical Analyses Alcohol
14%

Wine makers
David Baverstock and Sandra Alves.

Colour
Clear citric colour.

Aroma
Intense aroma showing orange blossom and fresh cut grass with notes of white plum and grapefruit.

Palate
The palate is creamy and full with delicate citric flavours and a fresh and persistent finish.
