Terras de Alleu Branco 2016 (Fernao Pires, Malvasia Fina and Viosinho)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Terras de Alleu Branco 2016 has a pale, almost translucent yellow straw colour with light green hues.
  • Nose: Rich bouquet charged with aromas of white fruits, pears, apples and a little citrus.
  • Mouth: Fruity and fresh on the palate, with medium body and mild tannins. Mineral and tropical notes on the mouth.

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.

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 about Terras de Alleu Branco 2013

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.
