Flor de S. José White Douro
Fine and complex
With a citrus color, the wine initially shows good floral, tropical mild, later evolving for some minerals, more discreet and elegant notes. Fine and complex with a good character of fruit, excellent balance between alcohol, acidity and fruit, and a very thin and long finish.

Grapes are harvested by variety and plots in boxes of 20Kg, and put in cold at 5/6°C.
After fully stalked, they are crushed. The must was subtly pressed and decanted until necessary limpidity. It fermented in a temperature around 16°C in vat during 3 weeks. The wine aged on the fine lees for about 6 months, after which it was submitted to coerce, filtered and bottled.
