INTRODUCTION From the vineyards of Casa de Vilar, where Regina Pessoa and Abi Feijó live and find inspiration for their creations, an Alvarinho fermented in barrel was created, with a very particular profile and different from the expressive and aromatic style of this variety from the Minho region . As the name suggests, Wanabi is a wine that tries to be a distinctive Alvarinho.

VINIFICATION The grapes come from a 1.6 ha vineyard at Casa de Vilar, planted in the Vale do Sousa sub-region. The wine vinified and aged in used French oak barrels. After 10 months in barrel, it was bottled in June 2016.

TASTING NOTES As in the first edition, this is a very discreet and elegant Alvarinho, with good notes of citrus, floral qb, tea leaf and wet stone. The barrel notes are very well integrated, giving complexity. In the mouth, it has a good volume, with acidity and minerality, in contrast to a very discreet sweetness. The finish is long and refreshing, complex and balanced. Wanabi is indicated for the table, but it will evolve well in the bottle and it will be interesting to follow its course.
