The indigenous Loureiro and Pedera varietals are used in the production of the Santola VV. On the nose and taste, it exudes aromas and flavors of apple, lemon, and stone fruits in plenty. There is also a hint of carbonation. It is best to consume this wine when it is very cold, and you should always have a backup bottle ready on ice.
It just so happens that Santola is the Portuguese word for spider crab, and it just so happens that this wine is a perfect match for shellfish. Everything from crabmeat to shrimp to haddock to salmon tastes delicious. Also, keep in mind that it is delicious when consumed on its own.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
