Old vine white from the beautiful Douro Valley made from old vines

(+70 years old), planted with a mix of native varieties (more than 15), being Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato. If that doesn’t make you want to try this great wine then let me try a bit more.

Barrel fermentation in new and used French oak and Chestnut barrels (30% new), followed by a 12 month ageing on the fine lees create aromas of orange peel, amaro liqueur, saffron, fennel seed and dried apricots that soar from the glass. It is all held intact by pleasantly dry tannins and good acidity, leading to a medium long finish.

Style: Fresh complex white.

Serving Temperature: 10-12C

Suggestions: Matches well with baked fish dishes, light game and roast pork belly.
