VINFICATION: The grapes were harvested by hand, which then rest for 24h in the cold room. They are then carefully sorted through in the winery and
after destemming and crushing, they are cold pressed to avoid oxidation reactions. Fermentation takes place in 225L French oak barrels for about 12
WINEMAKER’S COMMENT: Straw-yellow colored wine with a bright appearance, it presents rich aromas of stone fruit, slight salinity, and light
pastry notes. On the palate it is vibrant and enveloping, with refreshing acidity and a lot of creaminess. The long and intense finish gives it a gastronomic dimension.
Located in the historic region of Colares, on the slopes of Serra de Sintra, the vineyards of Casal de Sta Maria are arranged in a wonderful landscape looking over the sea, at the westernmost point of continental Europe. They were planted in 2006 by Baron Bodo von Bruemmer, then 96 years old, with the aim of producing high quality wines that express the unique terroir of this farm. That was his passion, respecting the environment and dignifying the region.
