Vineyard: In Portugal the Albarino grape is known as Alvarinho. The Pouco Comum Alvarinho (which translates as 'uncommon' Alvarinho) is a very unique style of wine that result from a blend of 4 different wines made specially for this blend of Alvarinho. More than a blend of wines of the same vintage also blend a small percentage of wines of several vintages that confer to the wine complexity and a unique character. Integrated production in the vineyard. Yields of 60 hl/ha and planting density of 2300 vines per hectare. With granitic soils, 90% of the vinyards are with single-cordon training and 10% with sylvos training. January is the normal time for pruning. Harvesting by hand in September. Vinification: Grapes pressed at low pressure, fermentation in stainless tanks with temperature control ( 12 to 14ºC) during three weeks.

Food Recommendation

Perfect accompaniment to all fish and seafood dishes as well as white meats.
