Dos Lusíadas Eleivera Branco
The wine is elegant, pale yellow flecked with green in color. The nose displays fresh, fruity aromas of peaches and pears with hints of citrus notes. The wine is clean and fresh on the palate with perceptible volume on the mid-palate. The finish is broad and taut with citrus flavors.
Pairs perfectly with fish and shellfish and particularly well with skewers of sea scallops à la pancetta and Portuguese cod. Serving temperature: between 9-11°C.
The grapes are hand-harvested at maturity and transported in trays. Vinification takes place with the pressing of whole grapes, cold static settling and fermentation in stainless steel vat using the yeasts occurring naturally on the grapes. The wine matures in stainless steel vat on the fine lees for 6 months.
