The Freitas family has been focused on creating high-quality wines since its founding in 1920. While all of the wines produced by the winery have been the product of pride and care, but they were unbranded and sold wholesale up until 1997. That was the year in which Casa Ermelinda Freitas was established as a brand with a voice of its own in the wine world.

Dona Ermelinda White 2017 is one of Casa Ermelinda Freitas' fine offerings. This white wine is made out of a masterful blend of Fernão Pires, Arinto, Antão Vaz, and Chardonnay grapes. After harvest, these four varieties of grape are subjecting to temperature-controlled fermentation to keep the wine as fresh and flavourful as possible. It is then aged for three months in French and American oak.

This pale, straw-coloured wine is both intense and well-rounded. Smelling of honey and tropical fruit, its aroma is sure to draw you in while the flavour will make you stick around. The balance achieved between sweetness, acidity, alcohol, and the wood from ageing is commendable. Try this fine white wine alongside lighter fare such as fish, salads, pasta, and white meat and see how it can help those dishes reach the next level.

The colour of pale-green straw, this wine has an intense, fruity aroma with notes of honey and tropical fruit. Well-rounded on the palate, with a good balance between the acidity, sugars, alcohol and wood. A long-lasting, pleasant and persistent final note.
