Description

Adega do Demo Bitoku 2018

Ever heard of Treixadura grape varietal? Refined and smooth, the Treixadura grape is a white grape, the jewel of the Ribeiro vineyard. It sprouts and ripens slowly, therefore it is sensitive to altitude. It is grown mainly in valleys and slopes which are well-orientated. It is not very resistant to droughts and needs warm soils. It is moderately susceptible to oidium and mildew strongly to Botrytis cinerea (grey mould) and excoriose(not excercise.. tsk).
Located in municipality of Puga in DO Ribeiro. Estate vineyard owned by Carlos and Laura, planted with Treixadura, Godello and Loureira (all white grape varieties). Slate and clay. South facing with an altitude of 280m, which is high-mid high for Ribeiro.
From a blend of Treixadura + Loureira, the 2018 Bitoku needs some air to open up.
Once it does, notes of waxy orchard fruit and salinity emerges. Oily textured with medium-plus acidity and good roundness. Perfect match with seafood. Reminds us a little of Northern Rhone whites, Rousanne/Marsanne but with more freshness. Best to decant before drinking.
18 hours of cold maceration. Fermentation with natural yeast in stainless steel tanks. In January and February, batonnage for a short period in order to increase contact between wine and fine lees. Small dose of SO2, no fining with chemical agents, filtering or correction. Bottled in October.
Bitoku is a wine made with grapes grown in Carlos and Laura’s own farm. Therefore they wanted to give it a name that represents its origin. Bitoku is the name of a Japanese carp that lives in the water basins of a traditional farm (like a small pond). It is the emblem of the wine and guardian of our lives. It means “virtues” in Japanese. The name also has a strong relationship to the seven virtues of Bushido (the philosophy of Samurai). For them, the virtues show the way that a winemaker has to follow, from the vineyard to making wine.
