Quanta Terra Reserve White 2013
After years of research and study of Douro geography, Jorge Alves and Celso Perreira combined their years of viniculture and viticulture together to create a wine that spoke of their love and passion for this outstanding region.
Tasting Notes Rich aromas of stone fruits, white pepper, cloves and a hint of oak. Very intense in the mouth with smooth acidity. Balanced by a rich, broad texture and a firm structure. Very good concentration, with a deep mid-palate, round but not oily, revealing complexity and tridimensional attributes. A long, focused, and persistent finish.
Vinification/Maturation Grapes are harvested in the early morning when temperatures are cooled (8ºC), manual selection of grapes entering the winery, followed by whole cluster pressing. Fermentation in stainless steel tank for 20 days at low temperatures (12-14ºC). End of fermentation happens in new 500 Liter French Oak barrels.
