Quinta d’Aguieira White 2018

2018 was a rather unstable year. After a cold and dry winter, came a wet and stormy spring, with occasional hail. Humidity allowed downy mildew to grow, but it was stopped by the early August heat. Later in the summer, high temperatures led to sunburn and dehydration. Dry harvest, with low yields that benefited quality.

Picked by hand, the best selected grapes ferment at controlled temperatures, after being pressed under low pressure. After fermentation, they age for eight months in French-oak barrels, of second year. After bottling, the wine ages in bottle for two and a half years.
