Azueira O Magnânimo D. João V Reserva Branco 2019

Azueira O Magnânimo D. João V Reserva Branco is a complex and dry white. The bouquet is a medley of fresh pear and mature baked apples with vanilla accents. The medium-bodied and dry palate has a good structure and balance with an acidity that coasts impassionately through the middle. Lots of oak, distinctive pear flavours, polishing off with a crisp dose of chalky minerality. The finish is intense and very persistent.

Varietal composition: Fernão Pires, Chardonnay and Arinto. The fruit comes from vineyards in Lisbon, Portugal's capital. The vines experience a temperate Mediterranean climate with the influence of Atlantic breezes. The area's originally Jurassic and cretaceous soils results in a clay-limestone soil composition, perfect for the production of wines with good sugar content.

The must cools to 15°C then goes through vacuum filtration with pearls. The fermentation is done with active dry yeasts under a controlled temperature between 16–18°C. The wine ages in American oak wood.
