Monólogo Chardonnay P706 2019
White Wine | Regional Minho | 13.5% VOL
Monólogo Chardonnay P706 is a monovarietal wine produced with grapes from vineyards in Quinta dos Espinhosos. The grapes are grown with sustainable and organic farming practices, the 2018 of this wine being the first one with organic certification. It’s a wine with great complexity and elegance.
The winter of 2018 was quite dry. Spring was more balanced, with some rain during April, which compelled us to apply treatments in the vineyards for mildew and oidium. Also, the vineyards in Casa do Arrabalde suffered some frostings during this month.
Summer was mild, only the lower vineyards in Quinta de Santa Teresa registering some burns on the 23rd of August. In the 8th and 9th of the same month it rained, which allowed to reduce the hydric stress and push the maturation process. The balanced, fresher profile of the 2019 vintage gave birth to slightly more acidic wines, with lower alcohol graduation.
One of the world’s most recognized and cherished grape variety from which highly aromatic and complex white wines are made from. A green-skinned grape variety with great acidity that can result in portuguese white wines with nice fruit flavors, buttery mouthfeel and notes of minerality. The Chardonnay grape is small with medium-sized bunches. An outstanding varietal with great potencial in Baião, a location in the vinho verde region.
