Description
 
Alexandre Relvas, trained in Bordeaux, makes beautiful, pure wines from native Portuguese grapes. Usually with modern techniques that ensure beautiful fruit expression. But in the case of the Art.Terra, he reverts to the ancient Roman use of amphora jars. The stone jars replace oak casks and stainless steel tanks and give a different style of wine, also due to the use of wild yeast and the maturation of the yeast cells for 3 months. Fermentation is very slow and the grape skins remain in contact with the juice for an extremely long time (60 days). That is of course only possible with a super healthy and ripe harvest. The impressive white wine is made from hand-picked Arinto grapes and yeast twice. Obviously an alcoholic fermentation, but also, for South European white wines very unusual, a lactic acid fermentation.
