VALE DONA MARIA VINHA DE MARTIM WHITE
Producer Notes 2017
Vinification and ageing
All grapes are de-stemmed before being carefully crushed in a
pneumatic press. The resulting must decanted for 24 hours at 10°C in 2,500 litre stainless steel vats. The must is then racked into new 225 litres French oak barrels, where it fermented for 25+ days at controlled temperatures between 10° and 14°C. The wine was aged in the same barriques for another 9 months, with battonage.
Vale D. Maria Vinha de Martim is incredibly vibrant and fruity in the nose, with touches of apricot, peach and fresh tropical fruits. In the mouth this wine reveals a very full, fresh and crisp grip, creating an extremely elegant, vibrant white wine with a very long finish.
