Singular 2016

White Wine | Vinho Verde DOC | 13.0% VOL

Singular is a Vinho Verde produced mainly with grapes from Old Vines, in conversion to organic farming and selected exclusively by the winemaker.

The winter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016 had occasional, but intense, rain with above-average minimum temperatures. Spring was marked by strong and intense rain in April, which extended until the 2nd fortnight of May, marking the beginning of the vegetative cycle with maximum temperatures below the average of the previous year and causing strong mildew attacks in the region. From a wine-growing point of view, it was a particularly dificult year which required special attention in the ght against this disease.

Summer was characterized by an absence of precipitation, and above-average maximum temperatures, with the exception of three days of heavy rainfall in September.

The harvest at Quinta de Santa Teresa started in September, divided by varietals, with the bunches achieving adequate maturation and exceptional concentration of aromas and avours.

Grape Varieties

Grape variety Avesso

A high quality white grape variety that leads to full bodied aromatic and flavorful Portuguese white wines. This varietal can result in wines with citrus and tree fruit aromas along with subtle hints of tropical fruit. Avesso has medium-sized bunches with large yellow and green berries. High-yielding and rustic, this grape is planted primarily in Baião, in the vinho verde region of Portugal.

Grape variety Old Vines
Old Vines

Old vines are responsible for producing wines that express very well the local terroir, as their roots reach deeper depths, a greater diversity of soil layers and carry complex compounds to the leaves, bunches and grapes. The old vines give birth to grapes with a higher concentration of aromas, flavors and, consequently, more intense wines.
