Producer Note
Reguengo de Melgaço is a historic property located in the village of Paderne. Commissioned by Queen Leonor in the 16th century it was bought in the 1900s by its current owners, who planted nine hectares of vineyards across two different vineyard sites. They released their first vintage in 2001 quickly establishing themselves as a benchmark Alvarinho producer. This aromatic variety has been well known locally for centuries but it is only recently that Alvarinho is becoming more appreciated by consumers outside the domestic market. Alvarinho expresses its full potential in the Moncao sub-region of Vinho Verde, showing aromatic complexity and a wonderful combination of fresh fruit and floral notes.


Vineyard
The nine hectares of vineyard are split between between two areas. The area surrounding the manor house used to be part of the Minho river bed and has claysandy soils; while the vineyards in the S. Marcos hills have sandy soils of granitic origin.


Winemaking
The grapes were transported to the winery, lightly pressed and selected yeasts were used to start the fermentation. Vinified in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of between 15 and 18°C. The cool temperatures and stainless steel preserved the freshness and fruity aromatics in the final wine.
