The Monólogo Chardonnay P706 is a single varietal wine produced with grapes from Quinta dos Espinhosos. Relying on sustainable farming practices this estate is now in the process of conversion to organic farming. Having several generations-long family traditions of farming in Baião Minho region, Alexandre Gomes inherited a connection to the land, the people and the farming activities that have fascinated him since an early age. In 1991 he began planting a new vineyard of about spread over a number of plots, as Quintal, Tapadinha, Padronelo, Sarrabalde, Bogalhão, and Várzea, where native grape varieties of the region, Avesso, Arinto and Alvarinho, were planted and farmed under organic principles, with a strong ethic towards environmental and economic sustainability. In the cellar, the methods are to produce wines with minimal intervention, to show the clarity and personality of each individual parcel.
The Monólogo Chardonnay is a naked, unoaked Chardonnay with bright straw yellow hues. Intense and elegant on the nose with distinct notes of white pulp and orchard fresh fruits. Great structure texture and dense creaminess from extended lees ageing, and a lovely floral undertone to finish.
