Allo - Alvarinho & Loureiro 2011
ALLO may be just a greeting, or have arisen with inspiration from the famous series with the same name ... Allo Allo tells the story of René Artois, owner of a French cafe in the village of Nouvion,
... but ALLO are the initials of Alvarinho and Loureiro, two noble grape varieties of Minho (northern Portugal), which by its quality and different personality have been recognised.
The grapes come from vineyards of Alvarinho and Loureiro located in its terroir of excellence, respectively the valley of the Minho river and the valley of Lima river planted in the soil of granite origin.
2011 harvest has high temperatures in the beginning of the growing season that allowed early flowering, assuming an early harvest, however moderate temperatures during maturation (late July and August) favoured the aromatic concentration and moderate alcohol levels associated with a well–balanced acidity in the grapes. The climatic conditions of 2011 allowed a very elegant aroma, mineral, light tropical and floral, with a balanced taste, fresh and intense.
Die Trauben – ausschließlich Alvarinho und Loureiro – werden manuell in kleinen Kisten gelesen. Nach dem Pressen und vor der Gärung mit kontrollierter Temperatur wird der Most 48 Stunden vorgeklärt, wobei ausgewählte Hefen zum Einsatz kommen. Nach der Stabilisierung wird der Wein abgefüllt und reift in der Flasche weiter.
