Monólogo Malvasia Fina P70 2018

White Wine | Vinho Verde DOC | 13,0% vol.

Monólogo Malvasia P67 is a monovarietal wine produced in Quinta de Santa Teresa. The Malvasia Fina is grown in plot P67, with sustainable and organic agriculture practices. This estate is in conversion to organic farming. It is a complex and pleasant wine, with a long-lasting finish.

The winter of 2017 was relatively dry. However, this trend inverted completely during the 2018 Spring, which registered far greater levels of precipitation than the average levels of rainfall for this time. These rains forced us to apply treatments in the vineyards for mildew and oidium.

Summer, on the other hand, was hot and dry, the average temperatures in August and September being much higher than the annual averages for these months. Despite the intense heat, the generality of the vines went thru the season without any issues, only a few parcels registering some burns in the first week of August.

The harvest of this parcel started early, on 27 of September, in consequence of the hot summer.
