A traditional Douro field blend (a co-fermentation of various interplanted white grape varieties) this has a core of stone fruits and green apple with the waxy, toasted nut intensity that often comes from seriously old vines. On the palate, an almost palomino conference pear and white peach fruit profile, but what sets this apart from almost all wines at this price point is the intense minerality rounded off with a buttery finish and hint of toasted hazlenut. This is a serious winner!


Press Note:

'This is a really characterful, nutty white, a little wild, with a hint of fresh, grassy olive oil. A steely core of grapefruit and mineral acidity lends clarity and focus. A lovely, interesting white with a chalky texture. It is sourced from different terroirs – mostly granitic, all above 550m. This wine was partially fermented in used 225l & 500l Burgundy barrels and aged on lees with bâtonnage for several months.' Sarah Ahmed, thewinedetective.co.uk
