Case of 6 bottles

Our best-selling skin-contact "orange" wine.

Made from 100% Moscatel Galego grapes, hand-harvested in September from +40 year-old vines, grown on hillside slopes (schist and granite derived soils) in Alijó.

Whole clusters are put into cement tanks (no mechanical extraction) for 4 months on the skins; no SO2 added. Spontaneous fermentation with ambient yeasts, then pressed off in January and bottled without fining or filtering. Alc./vol.: 10.5%.

Our Tasting note: Intense straw yellow colour. Aromas and flavours of tangerine, nectarine, and lychee, with gentle floral/herbal notes. Medium-bodied, dry, refreshing acidity, some tannin tension and a long finish.

Pairing Suggestions: A complex wine to pair with grilled fish, shellfish, white meats, and strongly-flavoured vegetarian dishes. 

FYI - UIVO - pronounced wee-voh - means “howl”, and has many connotations, including a reference frequent wildlife visits in the vineyards, which includes foxes.
