Casa Ferreirinha, `Planalto` Douro Branco, 2017, 75cl
Portugal’s bestselling Douro white wine and it is easy to see why. Vinified from grapes grown at high altitude (Planalto translates to “High Plains”) to maintain freshness and delicacy in a hot arid region. A refreshing, mineral rich, citrus, and floral flavoured wine.
This wine is lemon yellow in colour with golden lights. On the nose, intense floral notes stand out with hints of tropical fruit and earthy, slightly shrubby tones. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a lively and well-integrated acidity, alongside floral notes and touches of white peaches. The finish is long and fragrant.
