The wine RAIZ White are honest but provocative, influenced by the tale of a connection to the mother land in Arcos de Valdevez. Born in a place where, as small children, we learned to experience nature, amidst a landscape rooted in granitic soils, exuberant nature, bathed by the cristaline waters of the river Vez. From our grandmother house, we used to look at the landscape where today the vineyards that gave origin to the wine Raiz White are planted. Intuition led us to pick a blend of white varieties -Loureiro, Trajadura and Padernã.
Grapes were co-fermented and crushed with destemmed in tanks of 1000 litres, followed by a short maceration and light pressing. The fermentation of the lots was initiated naturally, followed by a stage of 10 months in raw cement tanks, in contact with fine lees. We looked at pairing the freshness of the region with the complexity of live nature, giving way to genuinely atypical wine. The bottle holds a tale of connection to the roots in Alto Minho, celebrating the values of freedom, thought, will and creation.
