Perfumed Moscatel adds a spicy character to this wine. Pineapple and mango gives an exotic edge to the toast and spice flavors from wood aging. The wine is a little young and will be better from late 2020. - ROGER VOSS

PACHECA SUPERIOR BRANCO

Producer: Quinta da Pacheca
Appelation: Douro DOC, Portugal
Harvest: 2018

VITICULTURAL YEAR

The 2018 viticultural year was characterized by being extremely dry and hot. The evolution of climatic conditions has contributed to an earlier sprouting that has occurred throughout the entire vegetative cycle. The harvest began on August 11 in the precocious white grape varieties such as Viosinho, followed by the remaining white varieties and later the red varieties with normality until the end of September.

VINEYARDS

This wine is obtained from grapes of Viosinho and Moscatel Galego Branco varietals originated from several plots of vineyard planted at 140 meters of altitude.

VINIFICATION

After careful selection by their best state, the grapes were harvested for chests of 25 kg and sent to the wine- making center where they were slightly pressed in a pneumatic press. The resulting must was sent to stainless steel vats, inertized and cooled, where it remained for 24 hours to make the decantation. At the end of this period, it was filtered and transferred to another stainless steel vat where it was inoculated with selected yeasts, having fermented at a controlled temperature of 14-16oC. After the alcoholic fermen- tation, it staged in 2nd year French oak barrels with weekly bâtonnage during 6 months.

TASTING NOTES:
