Roaming freely in the cork oak forests, where it feeds preferentially on acorns, the Alentejo pig, an indigenous Portuguese species, is the only surviving herd pig in Europe. Due to the way it marks the landscape and preserves the region's Mediterranean forest, it is part of the Alentejo's heritage. It is also a gastronomic treasure and an invitation to pleasure. By associating it with this wine, we combine two major symbols of the Alentejo at the table.
60% Antão Vaz, 40% Arinto.
The grapes are harvested at the optimum point to guarantee their acidity and freshness. The must is obtained through direct pressing and is then decanted at low temperatures. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at 16ºC. After fermentation, the wine stays on fine lees for 3 months.
In this blend, Antão Vaz guarantees the floral and fruity notes, the fat and volume in the mouth while the Arinto ensures freshness, structure and acidity for a long and persistent finish.
