Vila Real branco Reserva 2014 (DOC Douro)

From Vila Real (20 km to Douro river) arrives this reserve white wine. The Douro River is the axis on which an immense palette of varieties take place. In this case we have Viosinho, Malvasia and Fernão-Pires (= María Gomes in DOC Bairrada). The three with exogenous origin (Trás-os-Montes, mediterranean and center-Portugal respectively).

A lemon yellow color without defects. Seductive and intense nose with aromatic herbs, cask wood and mineral aromas. The best. A light and easy to drink mouth with citrus and the typical step by oak notes ( partially fermented in barrels and subsequent aging on lees). Short finish, with good acidity and 12'5% volume in alcohol very well integrated.

Rui Madeira and Luís Cortinhas are the responsibles for this product from the west  Douro wine region. A lot of recognitions: one silver medal in Decanter World Wine Awards 2o15, premio boa compra 2015, one bronze medal in International Wine Challenge 2o15 and 87/100 points in Wine Spectator. Good relationship quality / price: 2'99 euros in E. Leclerc supermarkets.
