ERMIZIO VINHA DE BOUÇA 2016
A different and very mineral Alvarinho. Delicate bouquet combined with soft and fresh palate developing fruit and mineral hints. Good structure and mouth-filling with a long a clean finish. This is a wine with a refreshingly and harmonious aftertaste that requires some time to be fully understood.
Quinta do Ermízio has been producing wines for many generations. The wine style has evolved along the time but the passion for making serious wines is maintained. The unique Alvarinho wines, internationally recognised, are their best kept secret. The Quinta owns 15 hectares of vineyards organised by grape varieties in the various combinations of soil type and exposure with the objective of individualizing distinctive ecological niches where grapes acquire unique characteristics.
Grapes were hand-harvested at optimum acid-sugar balance and processed with minimum Intervention to preserve the character of ‘Alvarinho’ and the terroir. Grapes were crushed, de-stemmed, gently pressed and the must was naturally decanted and then fermented in stainless vats, at 18 ºC, until there was no residual sugar. After racking the wine was kept in contact with fine lies for two months, filtered with no cold treatment and bottled with low sulphur dioxide.
