Quinta Joao Barbosa: Ninfa Sauvignon blanc colheita
The grape is grown in rich clay-limestone soil in a climate of Mediterranean with Atlantic influences and high temperature variation. The grapes are harvested at an early stage to highlight the freshness of the aroma and the acidity. Fermentation and ageing in tanks until bottling. It has a lemony freshness of Sauvignon Blanc and the exuberance of Fernão Pires on the nose. On the palate it is full, with good texture and minerality with notes of stone fruits and mint tea leaves. It is good to eat with grilled fish, poultry and meat as well as pasta and lightly spiced dishes. Serve chilled.
