Textura da Estrela Branco 2021


A low-intervention white wine with fermentation and aging proceed in sequence, without temperature control and without malolactic fermentation, therefore in a more reductive way.

Grape Varieties: Encruzado (60%), Bical (25%) and Cerceal-Branco (15%). These vines with 25-60 years old grow at granite soils, treated in a sustainable practice, without herbicides and are in conversion to organic certification since 2020.

Tasting Notes: Textura da Estrela is a white wine with complex aroma. Orange peel, raw dried fruits (almonds and chestnuts) and dried tea leaf are the most evident aromas. In the mouth, it has marked acidity and minerality, the citrus fruit is highlighted as well as a creamy texture of fermentation in wood, well integrated.

Vinification: Static decantation for 48 hours was proceeded after destemming and pressing the handpicked grapes (only the gently pressed juice was used to this wine). Wild fermentation took place 50% in a 2500L François Freres foudre and 50% in cement tank. The wine aged for 11 months “sur lie” without batonnage in the same tanks and other 10 months in stainless steel. Naturally stabilized.

Gastronomy: Service temperature 13ºC.

Winemakers: Luís Seabra and Mariana Salvador.
