Grape Varieties: Malvasia de Colares

Ancient and rare grape sort, only grown in this area. Cultivated in the traditional phyloxera-free sandy soils
without root stock grafting, located at less than 1 km (0,62 miles) from the Atlantic Coast at an average altitude of 110 m (360 feet).

 

Vinification:

The grapes were harvested in the last week of September. Immediate destemming. Light skin contact (6 hours)
inside the press. The resulting must was chilled (6ºC) and cold settling took place overnight. Racked to a stainless steel tank. Fermentation lasted 16 days, with temperature control (15-16ºC). Tank aged for 12 months,
with regular bâtonnage. Exotic wood maturation during 6 months. Bottled in January 2014.

 

Tasting Notes:

Medium yellow colour with light green reections. The bouquet shows character of lemon and verbena with a unique and intriguing sensation of wax, honey and boiled apple. Strong presence in the palate, with good
acidity, dryness and a unique mineral character (sallé), reminding the nearby sea. With ageing, the wine loses
some of its fresh aromatic style but retains elements of delicacy, and the avours become even more distinctive,
with toasted notes of dried fruits, iodine and hay.

 

Consumption Suggestion:

Suits a wide range of foods and can also be served as an aperitif. It particularly suits the aromatic avours of Thai
and Indian cuisine, grilled fish and shellfish. Great with oysters! As the wine ages, gaining a dierent patina, it
serves well with more sophisticated and seasoned fish meals. Serve chilled (10ºC).
