Alice Vieira de Sousa White 2016

This fantastic Douro white is a perfect wine to show the potential of white's in Douro. Very rich nose, citric notes along with a great minerality. Long mouth with a dry finish.

Vinification

The grapes to produce this great white come from one of our Quintas, situated in the plateau of Celeirós, near Sabrosa. This is a very fresh and xistus area. The grape varieties used to do this wine are all Douro varieties: Viosinho, Rabigato and Gouveio. Each one gives a different characteristic to this wine: freshness, fruitiness and structure. They were carefully handpicked and selected. In the winery all the processed was done in reduced processed to avoid oxidization: they were carefully crushed, pressed and fermented in very low temperatures for a long period in inox tanks. It was bottled in February 2018.

Tasting Notes

Very fresh and citrus nose, with a long and equilibrated mouth.
