The grapes used for the Redoma Branco originate from old vines growing on the right bank of the Douro River, at an altitude of between 500 and 600 metres. Here, the predominant grape varieties are Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Viosinho, Donzelinho and Gouveio. The mica schist soils in which these vines thrive lend the resulting wines plenty of minerality, elegance and vibrant freshness. Alcoholic fermentation took place spontaneously, in 228L and 500L French oak barrels, where the wine also aged for 6 months.
One can distinguish refreshing aromas of lime, ginger and some exotic fruits. Very subtle hints of oak lend the Redoma balance and complexity, with great freshness on the palate as well as beautiful structure supported by firm acidity. A very long, mineral and lightly saline finish provides an elegant conclusion to the wine. While it is very delicate and harmonious in its youth, this wine will undoubtedly develop very well in bottle.
