GIZ Vinhas Velhas White
Grapes from different plots and varieties pressed together, with whole bunch. Resulting must fermented in used French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels, followed by regular batonnage until the date of bottling. Tartaric and protein stabilization achieved naturally during a prolonged 9-month aging in a barrel. 1800 bottles were produced. Citric and floral aromas, reminiscent of orange blossom and lime. Suggestions of vanilla, spice and beeswax add aromatic complexity. In the mouth it shows to be an elegant wine, full of minerality and freshness, reflecting well the calcareous soils from which it comes. It is simultaneously a deep, structured and complex wine, the result of the perfect maturation of the grape during the harvest and the long aging in barrel. Contains sulfites.
