O Produtor, tasting note published in May 23rd 2016

Citrine color and a delicate aroma, with lemon notes. Plenty of fruit on the palate. Nice, refreshing acidity on the finish to balance the wine.

They are completely destemmed, then slightly crushed and promptly pressed, giving rise to a fruity, well balanced must, with good acidity level. Débourbage is carried out under controlled temperature, followed by inoculation of selected yeasts. Fermentation under controlled temperature of 16º C, during approximately 15 to 20 days. Bottling: After ageing 6 months in steel vats.

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal (CAS) was established by Abel Pereira da Fonseca in 1926 to administrate the estates that he owned in the region of Bombarral since the beginning of the century, still belonging to the same family.

He planted his first stand-alone vineyards (i.e. vines with no other fruit tree in between) aligned and wired, which was considered very innovating at the time, as there were no tractors. Vineyards were divided into plots, each planted with one sole variety (which was also new at the time). He introduced new varieties. In a separate plot at Quinta do Sanguinhal, he planted 30 different varieties to study their adaptability.

The company has undergone modernization over the past few years: vines were re-established based on traditional varieties as well as new varieties to meet market demand; wine-making and bottling facilities have experienced major investments at technological and equipment levels. The traditional ageing in French and American oak is nonetheless still used.
