VINEYARD: Adega Cooperativa de Favaios has been one of the most prestigious wineries in Portugal since 1952. The spirit of cooperation between its 550 associates, allied to its understanding of the people of Favaios, has boosted the production of the Moscatel Galego Branco variety, making Moscatel de Favaios one of the most emblematic Portuguese wines.
GRAPES: Viosinho, Gouveio, and Arinto.
AGEING: This wine was aged for approximately 8 months.
PREPARATION: The first step was the selection of the grapes to be vinified. These were then destemmed, crushed, and pressed in a pneumatic press. The resulting must was decanted to clarify it before fermentation. The alcoholic fermentation began with the inoculation of selected yeast in stainless steel tanks for a period of 12-15 days at a controlled temperature of between 15-18ºC. Once the alcoholic fermentation was finished, an ageing process of five months began, during which contact with the fine lees was promoted. After this period, the wine was stabilized, filtered, and bottled. The wine was left to mature for about three months before commercialization.
PAIRING: Casa Velha 2015 is recommended to serve with red meat dishes.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 16-18°C
