Quinta das Marias Encruzado White
Manual harvesting in 20 kg boxes. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, followed by cold skin contact for 18 hours. After pressing and static decanting, alcoholic fermentation took place in a stainless steel vat with controlled temperature (18 ºC) for 17 days. After the fermentation, it was aged on fine sludge for 3 months, and bâtonnage was carried out during the first month and a half. For almost 15 years, Quinta das Marias has produced 100% wine from the Encruzado variety. Encruzado is probably one of the least expressive Portuguese white varieties while young, expressing its full potential over several years in the bottle. Contains sulfites.
