Description

Grape Varieties Rabigato, Códega, Viosinho, Arinto and others

Grapes for Redoma Branco come from old vines on the right bank of the Douro River, located at an altitude between 500 and 600 metres. The mica schist soils tend to originate mineral, delicate and very fresh wines. On the palate some dry fruit notes offer a slightly salty, long, and appealing finish. It will age well in the cellar.

The Redoma Branco 2020 embodies the elegance, structure and acidity which the mica-schist soils of the Douro are able to express. A delicate bouquet reveals floral and citrusy notes, orchard fruit, herbaceous aromas as well as hints of hazelnut which lend the wine further complexity and character.

The palate offers good acidity and a light structure, ending on a dry and spicy finish. This is a seamless white Douro wine with incredible
balance and great ageing potential.
