DUQUE DE VISEU WHITE
Producer Notes 2018
40% Encruzado, 28% Malvasia Fina, 20% Bical, 12% Gouveio
After destemming and soft-crushing, the grape must - suitably protected from oxidation - was subject to static decanting at low temperature for 24 hours, in order to achieve the desired limpidity. The different grape varieties used in this wine were vinified separately in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16ºC, and underwent a 20-day fermentation period.
A citrine colour with greenish tints. A young and intense fruity aroma, of citrus fruits and pineapple, with delicate notes of white flowers and a vegetal touch that gives the bouquet great freshness and complexity. Oak is well integrated. On the palate, this elegant medium-bodied wine has a lively, crisp acidity and further intense tones of fruit and white flowers that invite a long fresh finish.
