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:

'The grapes for white wines were sourced from terroirs (all above 550m, all 90+ years old) “that give us freshness and minerality, instead of the exuberance that sometimes characterizes the region,” said Ferreira, including, in the north, Pinhal do Norte (granitic soils) and Pombal de Ansiães (transition zone between schist and granite) and, in the extreme south east of the Douro, Escalhão (granitic soils). In 2017, the white wines were partly aged in stainless steel and partly aged in used French oak barrels from Burgundy.' Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective
