Castello D'Alba Old Vines Grand Reserve White 2014

In this wine we look for the aromatic concentration and high acidity of the grapes Códega do Larinho from very old and traditional vineyards of the Douro Superior, of high altitude around 500 meters. With this wine we seek to recover this native Douro grape that we almost only can find it in the old vineyards, and thus show his character very mineral and
creamy.

Product details

Winemaking

Hand picked grapes to small boxes of 15 Kg, cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16 ºC, very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. We made a great effort that all the pre-fermentation operations were carried out with the great accuracy to preserve the intrinsic quality of the wine. Part of the wine fermented in used French oak and remains there after a short racking on fine lees with regular stirring "battonage" to the making of the final blend with the wine in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Very complex aroma, a mineral character balanced with discreet hints of tropical and citrus fruits and orange peel. Perfectly balanced, evoking toasty notes of French oak, giving it great aromatic complexity. Long on the palate, with volume, full body and a very fresh final acidity.

Store and serve advices

Storage Lying down at a temperature of 15°C. Serving at a temperature from 10-12°C.

Food Pairing

A perfect wine to enjoy with food, try it with baked fish, soft goat cheeses, white meat and cod dishes.
