Wine maker notes
Production Area: The grapes for this wine are selected from Azeitão, Portugal.

Grape Varieties: A blend of quality white varietal grapes cultivated in the central region of Portugal.

Vinification: White grapes are fermented without skins at a temperature of approximately 68°F. The wine then undergoes a process known as "continuous method” which provides Lancers White with its touch of effervescence. In the process, the wine is filtered, cold stabilized, and then a controlled quantity of naturally sweet grape juice and yeast is added. The wine passes through a series of stainless steel tanks at 64°F and an atmospheric pressure of 4.5 Bars for a period of eight days while the secondary fermentation is completed. Prior to bottling, additional fresh grape juice is added to ensure the desired level of sweetness, followed by a final finishing filtration.


Other text
Lancers was launched in 1944 after Henry Behar visited Portugal with the purpose of finding a rosé wine that would appeal to the American palate. The wine was named Lancers in tribute to the painting "Las Lanzas” by Velasquez, a favorite of Mr. Behar. In addition to a lively, aromatic rosé, Lancers offers this fun, refreshing white wine. Both are made from a variety of carefully selected Portuguese grapes.
