|In stock (1)
Aneto is a plant, according to the Portuguese, 'expresses love' so it was only natural for the family to name their estate Aneto Wines. Their love and passion for the Douro Valley easily comes through in their bottles of wine. The indigenous white grapes of Gouveio, Rabigato, and Víosinho (to name just a few) are selectively planted on a mixture of granite and shale soils while the reds are appropriately planted on schist soils with outcrops of clay. Seamlessly integrating a new, modern wing to the existing old stone cellar makes for a great visit.
The Semillon is hand-harvested into small, 15 kg boxes at optimum ripeness, carefully sorted, destemmed and gently pressed into stainless steel fermenters. The fermentation proceeds slowly, only with indigenous yeasts, at cold temperatures. The wine is moved to French oak barrels following fermentation where it matures for 18 months.
Golden yellow in color with very complex and elegant aromas of dry fruits, apricot, honey and wild flowers. Shows beautiful harmony in the mouth with medium sweetness and structured acidity. Offers rich flavors of mature white fruits and gentle toast from the barrels.
