A nova colheita do Tapada de Coelheiros Branco já se encontra disponível no mercado. Apesar de um ano de condições climáticas rigorosas, a colheita de 2020 promete frescura e boa textura de boca, mantendo a qualidade pela qual sempre foi conhecida.
Known for its commitment to regenerative agriculture, Tapada de Coelheiros has just presented a new harvest, a testament to dedication to sustainability and environmental management, as well as a passion for producing high-quality wines.
Despite adverse weather conditions in 2020, the vineyards and surrounding ecosystems demonstrated resilience and adaptability, proving that careful fieldwork has yielded very positive results.
The 2020 harvest resulted from a winter that, despite being very rainy, was crucial for replenishing water reserves that were almost depleted after a summer of extreme temperatures. May, however, was hot and equally rainy, accelerating the vine cycle and bringing some disruptions to flowering and disease pressure, which, despite all efforts, had a significant impact on reducing grape production.

Produced from indigenous grape varieties, Arinto and Roupeiro, this wine comes from the Sobreira Vineyard, a rainfed vineyard with granitic and low-fertility soils, oriented from Northwest to Southwest at an altitude of 300 meters.
Valuing the importance of agricultural work and aiming to achieve an excellent final product, the grapes were carefully hand-harvested. The must fermented in Austrian oak Foudres, and the wine remained in contact with fine lees for 12 months, followed by an additional 12 months of bottle aging.
Tapada de Coelheiros White 2020 stands out as a wine with vibrant acidity, high structure, and complexity, conveyed through citrus notes with a subtle touch of dried fruit, its creaminess, and a long finish.
At Tapada de Coelheiros, innovative practices prioritizing soil, vine, and surrounding ecosystem health have been implemented. This approach not only produces exceptional wines but also promotes a more sustainable future for the region and its communities.
