Mainova Moinante Branco Curtimanta 2020
"Located in the Alto Alentejo area, Herdade da Fonte Santa has seen centuries of preservation of its soil, and now with the delicate hand of Bárbara Monteiro and her team (including winemaker Antonio Maçanita), this generous soil is giving birth to some of the freshest wines we’ve tasted from the region.
A terroir dominated by shale and granite, the Mainova estate operates in a unique ecosystem.
Out of their 20 hectares of vines planted with traditional Portuguese grape varieties, 17.5ha are in integrated production and 2.5ha in organic production regimes.
The entire harvest is manual and nocturnal, thus providing greater care for the grapes and a more careful selection. The winemaking process focuses on spontaneous fermentation, low sulphite use and overally minimal human intervention.
Their low environmental impact continues with their packaging. Most of our bottles are made of 100% recycled glass, the paper used on labels and shipping are also recycled and/or with a higher percentage of cotton." -Supplier notes
