Quinta do Crasto



Grape Varieties: 60% Viosinho, 40% Verdelho.

Tasting Note: Pale lemon in colour. The nose shows freshness and minerality, well integrated with fresh notes of citrus fruit. Appealing and serious, the palate offers great volume, freshness and minerality. This is a food-friendly wine, with a seductive and lingering finish

Vinification: The grapes, coming from the Douro Superior sub-region, are taken to the winery in plastic boxes and rigorously inspected on arrival. The grapes are then destemmed and pressed, and the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks where it remains for 48 hours at 8ºC for decanting. The alcoholic fermentation begins in stainless steel tanks and the wine is then transferred to French oak barrels where fermentation continues for 45 days at 14ºC.

Ageing: 6 months in French oak barrels. Barrels are stored in a rack system with rollers which enables barrels to be rotated to stir the fine lees without the introduction of oxygen. New barrels 50% / Used barrels 50%. French oak barrels 85% / French oak barrels with acacia heads 15%.

Gastronomy: Serving temperature 8-10ºC.

Winemaker: Manuel Lobo
