Casa do Arrabalde 2014 Portuguese white wine

Casa do Arrabalde 2014

White Wine | Regional Minho | 12,0% vol.

Casa do Arrabalde is a white wine with a  citrus color and crystalline appearance from the Vinho Verde region. A dry wine of great freshness, good acidity and minerality. It has floral notes, reflecting the combination of the white grapes Alvarinho, Avesso and Arinto. On the palate the finish is long.

The harvest of 2014 proved to be a challenge due to adverse weather conditions. Significantly colder Winter and the unusual rain during Summer, contributed to the late ripening of bunches. The harvest, made by varietal, started in October with manual selection. The must, after decanting, fermented in stainless steel tanks followed by partial malolactic fermentation.

Developed in the Vinho Verde region from local grape varieties, with the use of sustainable farming practices, this Portuguese white wine expresses the natural characteristics of the terroir, supported with  minimal intervention techniques.
