CASTELLO D'ALBA VINHAS VELHAS WHITE
Producer notes 2018
Códega do Larinho (60%), Rabigato (20%), Viosinho (20%).
Hand-picked grapes to small boxes of 15 Kg, cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16ºC, very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. We made a great effort that all the pre-fermentation operations were carried out with the great accuracy to preserve the intrinsic quality of the wine. Part of the wine fermented in used French oak and remains there after a short racking on fine lees with regular stirring “battonage” to the making of the final blend with the wine in stainless steel tanks.
