Vinification Method: The Bojo do Luar project came to life during a trip Savio of Savio Soares Selections made to the Vinho Verde region. Here he met Fernando Paiva, a biodynamic producer who has been experimenting with adding ground chestnut flowers to the grapes and must before fermentation began. Meanwhile he’s halted using SO2 altogether since 2017.The vineyards are treated with no chemicals and the wines are treated wiht little to no intervention, which results in expressive wines

This wine was produced from a tiny 30 year old parcel of Azal and Arinto situated on a slope near the Tâmega River in the Vinho Verde region. The grapes were destemmed and transferred to two talhas (amphoras) to start fermentation and maceration. At this moment, one kilogram of ground chestnut ower was added and mixed into the mass. The fermentation lasted for 17 days. At this point, the amphora was sealed. The skin-contact maceration for these two talhas lasted for nine months. Unfiltered, unfined, no added SO2.

Tasting notes: medium bodied, layers on layers, dried herbs, dried apricot

Pairings: piri piri chicken, grilled sardines, peixinhos da Horta (tempura fried green beans)
