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 400 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. A delicate bouquet reveals floral and citrusy notes, orchard fruit, herbaceous aromas as well as hints of hazelnut which lend the wine further complexity and character. This is a seamless white Douro wine with incredible balance and great ageing potential.
