JP Azeitão White 2021 presents a citrus color, very floral and fruity aroma with notes of orange blossom, pineapple and citrus. On the palate these sensations are enhanced and supplemented by a very accentuated acidity and an elegant structure, giving a fresh, long and persistent finish.
Produced from the two main white varieties Fernão Pires and Moscatel de Setúbal. In 2021, the year was held with a below average temperatures in the Spring and a very wet Summer with mild temperatures, causing a slightly later ripening of the grapes. The harvest took place without rain, bringing optimal conditions for the vinification of the grapes. The Fernão Pires was harvested in August, and the Moscatel was harvested in the middle of September. These two varieties were vinified separately using a gentle press, fermented at low temperatures to promote the conservation of the primary aromas of the grape. The Moscatel wines consistently shows floral and fresh characteristics and the Fernão Pires adds structure and aromas of yellow fruits.
