The grapes were hand-picked and unloaded. In the cellar, grapes were destemmed and crushed before the must have been cooled to a temperature of 10ºC. After this period, grapes were pressed, with the must drawn off and filtered for decanting. The must's temperature was then kept at 14ºC, yeast was added, and the fermentation process was begun in open casks of American oak. Once the fermentation phase was finished, the wine was ageing, for 6 months, in new oak French barrels before the stabilisation and clarification.
This Quinta do Cidrô Chardonnay is a oak-fermented white wine with full, ripe and tropical-fruit flavoured. The toast is only perceptible in the smooth creaminess of the texture while acidity and a crisp lemon edge give the wine an attractive final lift.
