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 400 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.
This Redoma is an outstanding example of the Douro Valley’s potential to produce crisp, linear and uncomplicated white wines without underplaying the unmistakable complexity of the old vines, the terroir and the mica-schist soils of this region.
Fresh and delicate on the nose, this wine’s complexity and character is supported by a subtle fruity profile with notes of citrus and pineapple, floral nuances as well as herbaceous and nutty hints.
The palate shows good structure and excellent acidity, following through to a dry and piquant finish. This Douro white delights with its fantastic balance and ageing potential.
