Fruit from the old Heremitas (1970) and Nora (1980) vineyards, including a field blend plus Roupeiro, Alicante Branco, Trincadeira das Pratas, Rabo de Ovelha, Arinto and Fernão Pires. 7% barrel-fermented, the rest in tank.
“Complex and slightly smoky. Clean-cut citrus and herbs. Terrific freshness and tension – pithy texture. ‘This is what our whites should be’, says owner and winemaker António Maçanita. Very long.”
