PORTAL DO FIDALGO
Vinification: After a previous selection, the grapes are exclusively transported in crates of 20 kg, then squeezed entirely, so as to obtain a must of high quality. The must is clarified at 12ºC for 48 hours, then ferments at 18ºC for 12-15 days.
Organoleptic Properties: Limpid aspect, citrine coloured, complex and neat aroma, much mineral with citrine notes blended with flowers and tropical fruits. Complexed and fresh taste, mineral, full bodied, persistent, and an extensive ending with characteristic of the ALVARINHO grape.
Alcohol: 12.5% vol.
Total acidity: 6.8 g ác.tart./l
Residual sugar: 2.5 g/l
Storage: The bottles packed in carton cases should be stored without opening in a clean and airy place in normal conditions of temperature and humidity. The storing should not be done in places where there is sun exposition, or under a roof of easy warmness. The cases could not also be in direct contact with the floor. Cannot be stored in contaminated or contaminative areas: aromatic products, fuels, solvents, inks, pesticides, etc. Considering the short period of time in storing, it is not advised to put the cases downwards.
