The grapes used for the Redoma Branco originate from old vines growing on the right bank of the Douro River, at an altitude of between 500 and 600 metres. Here, the predominant grape varieties are Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Viosinho, Donzelinho and Gouveio. The mica schist soils in which these vines thrive lend the resulting wines plenty of minerality, elegance and vibrant freshness.

Grape Varieties: Rabigato, Códega, Viosinho, Donzelinho, Dorinto and others. Average Vine Age 65-85 years.

Soil: Schist

Tasting Notes: This White Redoma offers an exceptionally fresh and austere character. A complex nose combines subtle citrusy and floral notes with the minerality typical of mica-schist soils. The palate is silky, with an outstanding acidity which lends the wine a firm backbone. This light-footed Redoma Branco 2019 impresses with its balance and ageing potential. The finish is linear, dry and expressive.

Vinification: After being meticulously sorted on our sorting table, the fruit was gently pressed and left to settle for about 24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation took place spontaneously, in 228L and 500L French oak barrels, where the wine also aged for 6 months.

Aging: 6 months in French oak barrels.

Gastronomy: Oysters, oven-baked fish, poultry and other white meats. Vegetarian options: dishes based on root vegetables (turnips, sweet potato, beetroot), Caesar salad, cheese. Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.
