Caves Transmontanas, Vértice Branco NV
1 in stock
Surrounded by the Transmontanas mountains and the borders of the Douro valley, the climate is hot and dry in the day, but with cold nights. The West is sheltered from the damp winds by the granite hills of Marão and Montemuro. The vineyards on granite and schist soils are subjected to very hot and dry summers and harsh and long winters with lots of frost and snow. The grapes are planted at 600m on granite soils which helps develop minerality, balance and finesse. The conditions are too challenging to produce any classic Port wines but ideal for sparkling.
