Montado White Wine

MONTADO 2016

WHITE WINE
V.R ALENTEJANO

The purchase of Casa Agricola José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes in 1986 saw a long-held dream become reality for José Maria da Fonseca: to produce an Alentejo wine using traditional winemaking methods from a historic and prestigious estate. The property won on both counts, having produced wine since 1878 and having one absolutely legendary vintage – Tinto Velho José de Sousa 1940. Montado was first produced from the 1991 harvest, and has maintained the original blend ever since.

Montado was first produced from the 1991 harvest, and the original blend has been maintained ever since, made mainly from grape varieties traditional to the Alentejo region, it is certainly a reliable choice.
