Quinta da Boavista Rufia Dao Vinho Branco Orange 2018 (750ml)

Orange Wine

The second vintage of Joao’s orange wine features a new blend of 28% Siria, 24% Bical, 18% Cerceal Branco, 18% Encruzado, and 12% Malvasia. The vines are all at least 35 years old and planted to the typical granitic soils of the Dão, mixed with old marine sediment and clay. The vineyards are all organic and have a mix of chamomile, clover, serradella and even eucalyptus. The bunches pass through the de-stemmer and then spend a total time on skins of 21 days. Fermentation takes place in open 1,20 x 1,5m stainless steel tanks. Only wild yeast is used during spontaneous fermentation. Non-temperature controlled fermentation takes place over 7 days with skin maceration in open tank and then it is racked to barrels where it finishes. The wine spends 9 months with primary lees contact in 400L neutral barrels but with no stirring. Malolactic fermentation happens during this time. The wines are not fined or filtered and bottled artisanally directly from the barrels.

The wine is beautiful. Light golden orange. Rich and deep aromas of apricot, peach, almonds and dried fruits. The palate is medium bodied with nice balancing tannin.
