Cortes de Cima Branco 2016

In 1988, a Danish-American couple set out in a sailboat to find a place to start a family, plant a vineyard, and make wine. . . and thus begins our story of Cortes de Cima Family Vineyards, one of Portugal's leading wineries. Located in Vidigueira, Alentejo, Cortes de Cima, is still a family run vineyard and winery under the daily supervision of Hans and Carrie Jorgensen, with 140 ha of mainly Aragonez, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Petit Verdot, Antão Vaz and Verdelho. Back in 1991, Syrah was not permitted on the regional regulations, but Hans planted it anyway, convinced that he had an ideal climate and soil conditions for that famous Rhone variety, the first ‘illegal' vintage of Syrah in 1998, was bottled as Incógnito, and quickly earned accolades and notoriety in Portugal, and Medals in London, Brussels and Bordeaux.

16,5 pts Revista de Vinhos - A barrel aged blend of local and international varieties grown on our cool Atlantic coastal vineyards and in the warmer Alentejan interior. The wine shows an elegant palate, with delicate citric floral notes. A gastronomic wine, with rich fruit flavors and a good acidity.

A gastronomic wine. with rich fruit flavors and good acidity. A batch. aged in barrels. of local and international varieties planted in our vineyards on the Atlantic coast and in the hot inner Alentejo. Characterized by very favorable growing conditions and that gave one of the best vintages in recent years. cold and dry winter. hot and dry summer. but free of heat waves. Dry September. From our vineyards on the Atlantic Coast Alentejo. the grapes from Albariño and Sauvignon Blanc varieties are allotted with Viognier grapes. from within the region. the Cortes de Cima estate. The grapes. harvested during the cool dawn period. They were de-stemmed and pressed. followed by decantation at low temperatures for 24h. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures for 15 days in the tank. which is followed by a stage lees with regular stirring. Partially aged for 6 months in French Oak (40% of total volume) until the time of bottling May 2016 bottled with filtration. This wine has complex notes of white stone fruit. melon. cashews and vanilla. The palate is rich and smooth. full of fruit and a harmonious acidity. Very gourmet.

Localizada na Vidigueira as Cortes de Cima são uma propriedade familiar dirigida diariamente por Hans (enólogo) e Carrie Jorgensen (marketing), com uma área de 140 ha de vinha, produzem-se as castas Aragonez, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Petit Verdot, Antão Vaz e Verdelho. As vinhas mais antigas, foram plantadas em 1991 quando a casta Syrah não era permitida pelas regulamentações da região. Ainda assim, Hans, convencido de que tínha o clima e o solo ideal para esta variedade do Ródano, criou o primeiro vinho "ilegal" Syrah, produzido em 1998 e comercializado com o nome Incógnito que depressa ganhou fama em Portugal e medalhas em Londres, Bruxelas e Bordéus.

Cortes de Cima Branco 70cl 2012
We had it in the restaurant.
I do not know the exact colour, it seemed a dark yellow type white. In my opinion, the Cortes de Cima Branco 70cl smelled like mango, banana and pear. Denser than normal.
