Monterrei Blanco, ‘Muradella’, Quinta da Muradella

Organically grown vines planted from 1970-1995. Tended in quartz and clay soil from 400 – 500 m ( 1,312 – 1,640 ft) elevation.

50% whole cluster, 50% whole berry with no stems are put into cold Maceration for 48 hours in stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation is half way done with its indigenous yeast, the wine is transferred to 3 year old 500 Lit barrels of French oak in order to finish the fermentation. After 8 -10 months in the barrel the wine is naturally decanted into stainless steel tanks where it stays for 4-6 months before it is bottled without filtration.

Tasting Notes

Deeply pitched aromas of peach pit, melon, honey and chamomile, with ginger and anise topnotes. Fleshy, palate-coating pear skin, pit fruit and citrus pith flavors show impressive energy and focus, with zesty minerality adding lift.
