Overview of the Wine
Located in Baião, the properties Casa do Arrabalde, Quinta dos Espinhosos and Quinta de Santa Teresa are made up of parcels of vineyards from low to medium production, organically cared for and in predominant granitic soils, performing a total of 45 ha of vineyard.

The three properties, although all located in the same sub-region, possess special, quite different features:

The vineyard of Casa do Arrabalde, exposed to the Marão foothills at 490m above sea level, produces late ripening grapes, blessed with a noticeable aroma and freshness. 

The vineyard of Quinta dos Espinhosos is located at a similar altitude, 470m, but protected by the forest area that surrounds it. This farm has evidenced an appetence for the production of high-quality Avesso, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Quinta de Santa Teresa, the most recent element of this project, is located literally on the frontier between the Vinhos Verdes (Green Wine) and Douro regions. Its vineyards are placed at 150 to 340m above sea level. Here blossoming happens early, as well as maturation. The vineyards are divided into terraces separated by granite walls from the beginning of the 20th century. This is a unique place for the Avesso, a vine variety with a notorious acidity, which benefits from the opportunity for a complete ripening. 

In the vineyards our mission has mainly to do with constant care, maintaining natural vegetal soil coverage and boosting its biodiversity, always in an organic certified production mode.

Sustainable.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine shows aromas of white flowers, lychees and citrine fruits. On the palate it presents good body and depth, revealing a silky profile in harmony with a citric side and well integrated acidity. Smooth and captivating finish. High ageing potential.
