The grapes for this white wine are all hand-picked at harvest and then meticulously stored in a cold storage for 24 hours. Utilizing cool temperate control before fermentation is a signature of Torre de Palma and this creates a crystal-like texture of minerality. This elegant and sophisticated white wine is stored in oak barrels from Burgundy giving it a nice toasty brioche nuance. Other notes on this wine are beeswax, roasted hazelnuts, grapefruit, honeydew, saline and nectarine.
About the Winery
Torre De Palma
Torre de Palma winery offers a truly unique experience as it’s situated within a boutique hotel at the heart of the Alto Alentejo wine region, more specifically in Monforte, Portalegre. The main aim was to build a traditional winery with its small marbled (marble from the region) wine-presses, where the grapes are trodden and the red ones fermented. One can also find refrigerated cement deposits. Torre de Palma wines respect the terroir in which they have grown and are mostly handcrafted and separated into small lots.
