Bright cherry colour. Floral exuberance, violets, red fruits (raspberry, strawberry) very characteristic of the grape variety. Fresh wine, slightly full-bodied and marked by red fruits. Pleasant aftertaste.
Total destemming, followed by cold skin contact for 10 hours. Afterwards, the cleaned must ferments at 14ºC for 15 days.
Quinta da Giesta and Fonte do Ouro are both highly representative of the traditional Portuguese landscape, characterised by small fragmented properties, but with a highly diversified land use – agriculture and forestry, low urbanisation and natural and semi-natural patches. Mostly composed by vineyards and pine forests, as well as, some small natural and semi-natural areas, this landscape is highly beneficial for the conservation of the Mediterranean biodiversity, since it promotes a moderate human pressure allowing the coexistence of humans, animals and the preservation of common rural habitats.
