Quinta do Vallado Douro White 2019


This unique white blend features mineral notes on the nose that are well- integrated with the oak. The palate is full-bodied, with excellent acidity, good complexity, citric flavors and a persistent finish.

Wine Facts


Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from the winery's Estate vineyards. After hand-picking, destemming and crushing, the resulting must is fermented in French oak casks from different forests. It is then aged for 7 months in French oak barrels (40% new oak, 60% second and third-use barrels) with periodic batonnage.

Serving Hints
Serve slightly chilled as a lovely accompaniment to seafood, chicken and light cream-based dishes.
