AUGUST 6 PACK                             Cabrini Wines

The grapes where harvested at optimum ripeness when the balance between fruit, sugar and acid was perfectly in balance. The grapes where gently crushed with minimal skin contact before the juice was separated from the skins. The juice was cold settled for 24 hours before it was racked from its primary lees and a percentage of the light lees was added again for further complexity. The juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain to capture the fruity aromas, and fermentation took place at 13 - 15°C for 16 days. Thereafter it was racked from the primary fermentation lees and allowed to mature for another three months on its fresh lees to create a wine with a fuller mouth feel.

Pair with plainly grilled fish, avocado based salads, shellfish and Peking duck.

Vinho Verde, Portugal's largest wine region,stretches from the Spanish border to south of Oporto. The soils are acid-rich and granite-based, with areas of schist or slate and clay. The slopes tend to be gentle in Vinho Verde, though some vineyards are planted on steep or terraced slopes. The region gets 1,500 mm (59 inches) of annual rainfall, which makes vinegrowing a challenge. Owing to this, many unorthodox growing techniques canbe seen in the region, including vines encircling vertical poles. The trademark fizz of Vinho Verdewines derives from the release of carbon dioxide during malolactic fermentation.

It is primarily known under the synonyms Trollinger in Germany, Vernatsch in South Tyrol and Schiava in other Italian regions.
