This unique white blend features melon on the nose, with
flowers and mature fruit aromas. The palate is fresh, with
great minerality, well-balanced and persistent, with
pronounced citrus notes.
The grapes come from Estate vineyards. After handpicking,
destemming and a very soft pressing,
fermentation takes place for nearly one month at
temperatures varying between 14 and 16 Celsius. Ninety
percent of the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks for
five months before final blending and bottling, with the
raining 10% is aged in new French Oak 225 litre barriques
for the same period.
"The 2008 BRANCO is a blend of Rabigato (40%), Arinto (27%), Viosinho (18%), Gouveio (12%) and Codega (3%), 90% aged in stainless steel. This is a lovely Branco, steely, stonewashed, clean and pure, with lemon-lime notes on the finish. It wakes up the palate and grips it. It provides some value for the dollar. This is the type of wine that will be most exhilarating young. It may hold. It may show ok with a few years on it. But it will only be at its best in its youngest incarnations—like now. So, pop those corks. There were 10,000 cases produced. Drink now-2011."
