The wine has been stabilized, filtered and bottled young to maintain its clear and fresh character.
Luis Duarte Vinhos
Founded in 2007, Luis Duarte Vinhos is a family business run by winemaker Luis Duarte and his wife, Dora Simões. It is headquartered on the Monte do Carrapatelo estate, located in the Reguengos de Monsaraz wine subregion in the Alentejo, south of Portugal. With 10 hectares of vineyards, the property enjoys a continental Mediterranean climate, characterized by very hot and dry summers, but with remarkable daily thermal amplitude, which promotes the retention of acids in the grapes, in addition to the development of aromas. Winters are cold and severe and it is this season of the year that most of the rainfall is concentrated. The soils are predominantly slimey, ensuring good water retention, which is fundamental for vines during the summer months. All viticulture is governed by sustainable practices, with cultural interventions carefully adapted to each grape variety and each plot. All vineyards were planted in 2004.
