Eleivera White

by Dos Lusiadas 2018

Producer : Dos Lusiadas

Region : Douro (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750ml

Food Pairing : Rich Fish, Scallop

Tasting Notes

In 2009, Rhone super star Michel Chapoutier picked out a plot in the Douro Valley. A small – very small – plot of 3 hectares, but full of promise: Eleivera. Here, the winters are tough, the summer a long, dry heatwave. To get sufficient output, Michel Chapoutier joined forces with local producers incredibly honest and pure representations of this region, which is a Unesco world heritage site. The Eleivera Branco is a blend of native Rabigato, Gouveio, Códega do Larinho and Viosinho grapes which has 6 months lees ageing. It is an elegant, pale yellow in colour with hints of green. The nose is of fresh, fruity peaches and pears with notes of citrus. The palate continues the flavours on the nose with a clean, fresh finish and lovely texture.

The Producer

Dos Lusiadas

In 2009, Michel Chapoutier picked out a plot in the Douro Valley. A small – very small – plot of 3 hectares, but full of promise: Eleivera. Here, the winters are tough, the summer a long, dry heatwave. To get sufficient output, Michel Chapoutier joined forces with local producers and worked with them to grow touriga nacional, a typical Portuguese grape. The result was Pinteivera and Eleivera, two representatives of this region, which is a Unesco world heritage site.
