This wine is all about all about fruit and freshness. It's made from a field blend, as are all of Cabeças do Reguengo's cuvees. This one includes the Manteúdo grape (also known as Listán in Andalucia) and gives a clean and crisp character with good, fresh citrous fruit and green olives.
To enhance the depth of freshness, the vineyard is situated 675m above sea level. It goes without saying that the grapes are hand-picked and sulphur is avoided as far as possible. Three quarters of the must is fermented at a low temperature before the wine is matured for 9 months in very old oak barrels (225/500 litres) and with no malolactic fermentation.
It goes well with oriental foods in particular. Dishes with ginger, coriander & spring onions. Stir-fries are a fantastic match, as well as plenty of shellfish, seafood & prawns.
