O Produtor, tasting note published in March 12th 2021
Clear and straw yellow in colour, this wine is deeply aromatic. Citrus aromas and notes of tropical fruits can be distinguished. An elegant acidity enhances the velvety texture of this wine, making it fresh, mineral and intense, with a long and lasting aftertaste.
Soft pressing of the grapes and fermentation at controlled temperature. Maria Gomes variety ages in stainless steel vats for 9 months. The remaining varieties age in second year French oak barrels for 9 months, with weekly bâttonage.

Quinta da Aguieira
Quinta da Aguieira is a place with history, whose walls are printed with memories. The history of this property dates back to the 18th century. In 1724, there was already a noble house, known today as Quinta da Aguieira. Stretching over 21 hectares, Quinta d’Aguieira distinguishes itself from the rest of the region by the incredible mosaic of micro-terroirs that compose it: The soils are alluvial river deposits, distinguished from the clay-limestone soils, originating from the sea bottom, which were at the origin of the region’s name (clay). The uniqueness of this location, climate and terroir is mirrored in each of the wines produced here, sublimated by time.
