Description

The Quinta Das Carvalhas 2021 white wine is a blend of the indigenous varieties of the Douro Valley, Viosinho, Rabigato and Côdega de Larinho. An elegant and expressive wine breaming with lemon and lime fruit and freshly cut apricots. On the palate its mouth-watering acidity and minerality provide a refreshing note and offer the perfect balance against the pronounced intensity of the citrus fruit. Hints of vanilla and a touch of toast develop further on the palate leading into a long lingering finish. If you are a fan of Chablis you will love this mineral example from the Douro Valley! 93/100 Points - Dia G, VWP Tasting March 2023.

When looking at producing a top Douro white, the focus was set upon the idea of blending the finest, traditional white Douro varieties and allowing them to integrate in perfect harmony with oak to reinforce its structure and generate more complexity. Carvalhas Branco was born in 2010 through the winemakers' ambitious approach to the small parcels of white grapes located at one of Quinta das Carvalhas’ highest spots, where the varieties Viosinho and Gouveio benefit from a higher altitude (400m) and cool breezes which are perfect for a good quality ripening of white grapes.

***18,5 pts Vinho Grandes Escolhas ***
It is a clean, clear and with a bright citrus colour, fine and delicate aromas, with great intensity, hints of fruit with hints of vanilla and toast wine. Although full-bodied on the palate causes a feeling of lightness, due to the freshness of the flavours of lively acidity. Ends with a very clean and refreshing persistence.
