CAMINHOS CRUZADOS Descarada Sweet White | 2017
What happens when, in August, our Chardonnay and Semillon grapes have already 18º of probable alcohol? A shameless (descarada) idea is born! We took up the challenge, collected the grapes and when the must went up to 11,5º we stopped the fermentation by lowering the temperature and with filtration, leaving the wine shamelessly sweet and fresh.TASTING NOTES
Descarada is a sweet wine, produced in a year in which very high temperatures occurred during the maturation period, which is the reason the grapes reached a high concentration of sugar. Because the harvest happened in the end of August, it presents a high acidity, which contributes for the excellent balance between its acidity and its sweetness, creating an “early harvest? wine. It presents banana and white fruits aromas, with a very pleasant floral component, excellent for accompanying sweets and fruit.
Excellent for accompanying sweets and fruits. Serve at a temperature between 6-8ºC.
"Partnership of Chardonnay and Semillon. Intense gold. Discreet aroma reminiscent of marmelada, some peach and tangerine. Dry pear, pharmacy and tea notes (...) Turns out to be quite fresh and pleasant.? Rating 16pts, Wine Magazine-Great Choices
