The interaction between the experienced winemaker Anselmo Mendes and Letra brewers lead to a new beer recipe with a strong connection to wine and to the Minho region. A fermentation with Saison yeast in the presence of grape berries of the Loureiro variety results in a surprinsingly fruity beer with low acidity and tropical aromas resulting from release of the compounds inside the grape berries during the fermentation process.
This beer is dedicated to “vindimas” the grape harvest season. Has 3 different wine varieties “Tinta Roriz”, “Touriga Nacional” and “Touriga Franca”. Was barrel aged for 8 months.
