2019 Arenae Colares white 50cl
Medium yellow colour with light green reflections. The bouquet shows character of lemon and verbena with a unique and intriguing sensation of wax, honey and boiled apple. Strong presence in the palate, with good acidity, dryness and a unique mineral character (sallé), reminding the nearby sea. With ageing, the wine loses some of its fresh aromatic style but retains elements of delicacy, and the flavours become even more distinctive, with toasted notes of dried fruits, iodine and hay.
The cooperative winery at Colares (Adega Regional de Colares) was founded in 1931. It congregates today more than 50% of the total production, with an important social role in the region. We understand the importance of protecting and preserving the Colares wine culture, its unique varieties and original viticulture methods. The ARColares philosophy rests on the imperative to ‘respect the Colares terroir’ and continue the tradition of our ancestors.
