Circus Number

VR Alentejano White

In 1873 Lulu was the first “woman” in America to go airborne before grabbing onto a trapeze or rope. The strength, focus and bravery this entails is mindblowing! And in a very small way, so too is blending a handful of native grapes to find both balance and beauty. Juicy stone fruit flavors with bright acidity to pair with any number of poultry or summer pasta dishes.

In the endless space, in the immensity of the undulating plains is Redondo – one of the regions protected by the natural barrier of Serra da Ossa, which benefits from the complicity of nature to guarantee singular wines such as Circus Number. On the poor and dry land, we cultivate vineyards which suffer hardness of the climate. And all of those factors contribute to creation unique freshness and complexity in wines.
