8 months in french oak barrels with batonnage
Last and limited edition of an iconic Coelheiros wine that will endure in history. A 100% Chardonnay that shows the expression of the variety in the Alentejo terroir, revealing a good potential for aging. A cellar edition.
The wine originates in Vinha Leonilde, a non-irrigated vineyard, which allows for a high concentration of the grapes. The soils are of granitic origin with the presence of quartz.
The grapes are harvested in the morning and sent to the cold room to maintain freshness and preserve natural aromas. The must is fermented in 500L barrels. Bâtonnage is done twice a week during a period of six months to potentiate the characteristic richness of the Chardonnay.
AROMA AND PALATE
The nose presents white fruit aromas evolved in discreet hints of smoke. The palate is unctuous, balanced and with good acidity that gives it a fresh and long finish.
