Casa Ferreirinha, Planalto White Reserva
On arrival at Sogrape Vinhos’s winery in Vila Real, the grapes, hand-picked in the high areas and plateaus of the Douro, were de-stemmed and softly crushed before fermenting in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 16ºC and 18ºC for about 20 days. The wines were kept separately by variety and/or vineyard at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After many tasting sessions and a strict selection the final blend was prepared, and bottled after clarification and stabilisation.
Tasting Note: It has bright clarity with greenish hints. It has a very intense and complex bouquet, with a prevalence of white fruits (melon and pear) tropical fruits (apricot and passion fruit) and some mineral notes. Its palate shows great harmony and a pleasant mouthfeel, with fruity and mineral flavours again in evidence. It has a long and delicate finish.
Food Pairing: Ideal wine with salads, light dishes, fish and seafood, or on its own as an aperitif.
