Monólogo Arinto P24 2015

White Wine | Vinho Verde DOC | 13,5% vol.

Monólogo Arinto P24 is a monovarietal wine produced with grapes from the plot P24 in Quinta de Santa Teresa. The year of 2015 allowed for excellent conditions for the development of this Arinto. Relying on sustainable farming practices this estate is now in the process of conversion to organic farming.

The 2014 winter and the first quarter of 2015 had rainfall capable of replenishing the water table soil. The second and third quarters had little precipitation. The temperatures were higher than the annual average for the region. Budburst appeared as usual followed by flowering. Moisture levels did not favour the development of diseases. Summer followed the trend of no rain, but maximum temperatures were below average. The dry and luminous weather of the second quarter, with acceptable levels of moisture in the soil, put ahead the maturation of the varietals for about 3 weeks. 

Between the 13th and 16th of September strong rainfall led to the suspension of the harvest. The dry and not excessively hot weather that followed allowed for the development of aromatic compounds well evident in the in the winemaking with grapes harvested after these dates. The harvest took place on the 28th of September, anticipated due to an accentuated maturation with bunches of exceptional concentration of colour and flavour. 2015 will probably be a memorable year in the region.
