Description

VITICULTURE

Espaço Rural is the personal project of Pedro Ribeiro. Both Pedro and his wife Catarine Vieira were winemakers in other Portuguese regions, but decided to come to Vidigueira, in Alentejo, to produce wines that are true to the historical traditions of this land.

WINEMAKING

As a tribute to the region they ferment some of their wines in impermeable pots called Talha, where both wine and skin must remain in contact until November 11th (St. Martin’s day). Their wines recently caught the attention of renowned wine critic Julia Harding MW, who writes for JancisRobinson.com, she gave high scores to both their red and white wines.Made from indigneous grapes – Antao Vaz, Arinto and Alvarinho – fermented in concrete tanks.

OAK TREATMENT

None

TASTING NOTE

Vibrant aromas of mango and tropical fruits. Medium bodied with a clean refreshing acidity.
