Chasing Harvest Vinho Branco White blend

 "Chasing Harvest was created by husband and wife, Michael Kush and Jennifer Kingen Kush from Chicago. ‘Chasing harvest’ is a wine industry term that describes travel between the northern and southern hemispheres for extra vintage seasons in one year. With just our passports and backpacks, a passion for adventure, travel, and wine inspired us to ‘chase harvest’ across five continents, eight countries, and 25 vintages. We use our experiences of the world’s greatest wine regions to handcraft our limited wines."

A unique barrel fermented and aged white blend sourced from a couple exceptional ‘Vinhas Velhas’ old vine vineyards near to the Quinta da Costa but with higher elevation. Unique Portuguese varietals including Gouveio, Rabigato, and Viosinho were hand harvested and carefully sorted back at the winery before being gently pressed. After cold settling the wine was racked to neutral white french oak barrels and similar to our reds fermented naturally with indigenous yeasts. The wines remained in barrel resting on its lees for 11 months. A very limited amount of barrel stirring was employed to enhance the texture of the wine and introduce complexity.The wine expresses citrus and stone fruit aromas, mineral notes and a creamy texture with an elegant finish.
