Vineyards are planted on the “hard-soil” of Colares. Very late manual harvest, intentional to allow the development of all the aromatic components of this variety. The grapes go through a tight selection process in the vineyard and winery. Skin Maceration of 100% of the grapes between 6-8 hours and then gently crushed and pressed. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel vats followed by ageing on fine lees with battonage until the end of January. Light filtration before bottling.
Delicate aromatic flowers typical of the variety, anis and tangerine flavors, fresh and vibrant a good expression of the wild and difficult terroir where it grows. Immediate sensation of freshness and acidity, notes of orange and tangerine compote, long finish and the characteristic feeling of salt typical from the region of Colares.
An estate which dates back to the 18th century, but had previously ceased wine production in 1903. Bought by Baron Bruemmer (originally from the old Baltic state of Livonia), first to breed Arab thoroughbreds, and later on reviving wine production, including the legendary DOC of Colares.
