Having honed his winemaking skills around the globe, Quinta da Cassa’s winemaker Rui Madeira has returned to the land of his birth to work with the indigenous varieties and spectacular vineyards of the Douro. The estate is found in the upper Douro, on the river´s left bank, amongst the grade-a vineyards where the best vintage ports are made. Here the combination of old vines and high altitudes give his wines the balance, poise and sense of place that is so often lacking in the region.
The grapes come from vineyards with an average altitude of 550 metres, planted on the schist soils of the upper Douro.
After hand picking and gentle crushing, fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Following this, the wine was aged for a further four months in stainless steel before bottling.
Crisp and fresh with the mineral, citrus and floral notes so typical of Douro whites. Refreshing yet rich and textured.
