Quinta do Monte d’Oiro Reserva White 2017

Handmade harvest on two different dates to make sure the grapes were all at their perfect maturation level, aged 6 months in stainless steel 55% and french oak 45% where the final result is a wine where the wood is very well balanced.
The type of wine that makes us very curious to try in some years to check his evolution.

Quinta do Monte d'Oiro

Quinta do Monte d'Oiro ('Hill of Gold Estate') is located in the Lisbon region, 50 km north of the Portuguese capital, nestled between the Montejunto mountains and 20 kilometers from the Atlantic ocean. The terroir is a combination of limestone and clay soil, wiht a Mediterranean micro-climate (similar to the Rhône's Mistral), enabling slow ripening, natural acidity, moderate alcohol level and smooth tannins.
