This beautiful natural wine is made from a Single Old Vineyard field blend (about 10 different grape varieties) in the Serra de Soa Momede microclimate area of the Northern Alentejo region of Portugal. Grapes are handpicked and undergo natural fermentation followed by aging in old oak barrels for 12 months. Bottled without fining and filtering. No malolactic fermentation.
This creates a classy ,rich and deep white wine with the balance in structure making it a tremendous wine. The weighty palate brings lots of melon and honey forward, with good acidity and minerality leaving a long lasting finish. Try with poultry, game and white fish, white wine sauces with intense herbs, warm root vegetables or creamy textured cheeses.
Winemaker Joao Afonso of Cabeças do Reguengo is a fascinating man, evolving from a career as a leading ballet dancer to a top Portuguese natural garage wine producer! He produces wine with minimal intervention and optimum quality, obsessed with wines from old vineyards, cared for with organic and sustainable awareness to achieve wines that can be classed as truly natural.
