Altano Douro White 2021/22, Symington Family, Douro
Bright, fresh citric and herbal aromas with a hint of vanilla, nuances of pineapple and a final suggestion of honeysuckle.
Appealing sensation of balance and freshness on the palate, with crisp flavours of green apple and yellow plum.
Altano Douro wines are produced by the Symington family with grapes
sourced from the family’s own vineyards in the Douro Valley where they have lived and worked since the 19th century.
After de-stemming and a light crushing, some contact between the must and the skins
is encouraged in order to extract the desired aromatic compounds. After clarification,
the must is fermented in stainless steel vats at 14-16°C. The ageing process in tanks
is carried out with minimal contact with oxygen, in order to ensure maximum
preservation of the primary aromas.
