Product Details

Quinta das Carvalhas is the most emblematic and spectacular property in the Douro Valley. Written references about this magnificent vineyard can be traced back to 1759, its old vines, of post-philoxera plantation, are reaching the respectful age of one century.
Enjoying a prominent position on the left bank of the Douro River, in Pinhão, it covers the whole of the hillside facing the Douro river and occupies part of the slopes of the right bank of the tributary Torto River. Carvalhas Branco was born in 2010 through our 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.

Varieties: Viosinho & Gouveio.

Winemaking & Ageing fenólicos.
The grapes are carefully handled and crushed on a pneumatic press. Fermentation starts in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. 80% of the juice is transferred to french oak barriques for a 6 month ageing period in contact with lees. The wine is released after one year in bottle.

Tasting Notes
A clean, bright, citric coloured Douro White, revealing intense yet delicate aromas of orange blossom, apricot, with greenish nuances and a typical mineral character, which combine with hints of vanilla, derivative of its ageing in oak. Excellent structure, with a great complexity of fruit flavors yet with immense freshness and acidity which suggest great aging potential.
