Three grapes form the assemblage of this wine: 75% Loureiro, and 12.5% each Trajadura and Arinto. The grapes were put in a pneumatic press (each wine variety separated). Fermentation occurs in temperature controlled vats.
The wine is citrus in color with slight spritz. Citrus fruits and floral aromas. Soft, harmonious, fresh and young.
The wine is ideal as an aperitif and is especially recommended for seafood, fish and white meats.
