Grape Varieties Arinto, Maria Gomes, and Viosinho
This wine is a project between Susana and Raymond Reynolds, made to showcase a different version of Alentejo.
The wine comes from high-altitude, old, field-blend vineyards in the very special and unique terroir of the Serra de São Mamede. Part of the wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel, to retain freshness and vibrancy. The other part was aged in a old, 1200 Litre barrel, to add a little richness and complexity.
The resulting wine shows an amazing range of fruit flavours, with great ripeness and weight. It is also balanced with zippy freshness and a stoney, mineral texture.
A delightful and versatile wine, good on it’s own or with any lighter dish.
