APPELLATION: Douro

VINEYARD: Adega Vila Real. Formed in 1955, this cooperative currently gathers the works and labour of over 1100 growers in the north-east region of Portugal, right in the Douro denomination. A fantastic combination of old vines and the most modern techniques of harvesting and winemaking, is the key for creating marvellous wines worthy of awards.

GRAPES: Viosinho, Malvasia Fina, and Fernão Pires.

AGEING: Aged in stainless steel vats.

PREPARATION: The grapes are harvested by hand, and properly destemmed and gently crushed upon arrival to the winery. Fermentation is conducted at a controlled temperature of 16°C, with regularly scheduled soft crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve the flavour. The wine is then stored in stainless steel vats until it is ready to be commercialized.

PAIRING: Works perfectly as an aperitif, but also pairs well with soft dishes, such as fish dishes and seafood.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 8-9°C

ALCOHOL: 12.5%

Reviews of other vintages of Terras de Alleu Branco 20162013

3/5

The colour of the Terras de Alleu Branco is inter yellow and transparent. Smell a bit like lemon grass. Very long aftertaste.
Right with a Caesar salad.
I tried it during a wine tasting.
I bought some bottles of this Terras de Alleu Branco 2013 at Uvinum.
I do not know whether this 2013 or the previous vintage is the best I've tasted.
