Cartuxa white is a blend of Antão Vaz, Arinto and Roupeiro planted in the Fundação Eugénio de Almeida vineyards. When the grapes reach the right point of maturation they are carefully picked, de-stalked and gently crushed. Fermentation is in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 16ºC and the wine matures on the lees for a further twelve months, with battonage.
Pêra-Manca is the label reserved for the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation’s most exceptional wines.
The whites are a blend of Antão Vaz and Arinto grape varieties, showing a citrus colour and a fruity, persistent, delicate and complex aroma. On the palate they are soft, dry, complex and balanced.

After harvesting, the grapes are taken to the winery where they are cooled, de-stalked, lightly crushed, pressed ready for fermentation at 16ºC in stainless steel vats. After fermentation the wine is filtered, blended and stabilised ready for early drinking.
