Alto do Joa White 2017

An Orange wine of century-old vineyards from the very north of Portugal.
It is a different wine that one is used to and you need to try it to take all its aromas (honey and floral) and flavours. It has a dry profile, fresh and persistent and it shouldn’t be taken too cold to get its full expression.

Casa do Joa

It is the harsh winters and the ruthless sun of Alto Transmontano which, without mercy on the land, compels it to free from the shale the best they have to offer our grapes. From the grapes to the only wine produced in this region goes the distance between tradition and innovation.
