Tasting Notes

"Oak-aged Rabigato is rare, so it is interesting (and delicious) to taste this successful wine. It has a judicious use of wood (just a hint). The wood has just softened the enthusiastic acidity while crisp fruit broadens this naturally fruity wine. Drink from 2019."

The Producer

Colinas do Douro

Located in the extreme southeast of the Douro Demarcated Region, Colinas do Douro is part of a vast property with four contiguous farms totaling 476 hectares, belonging to Colinas do Douro Sociedade Agrícola. The property is part of the Douro International Natural Park.

With 106 ha of vineyards, at an average of 600 meters above sea level, the four Quintas slopes predominantly face North and are buffeted by rigorous winters. Respecting and enhancing the rich local biodiversity, the wines express this unique terroir.

A critical aspect of their mission is the preservation of biodiversity in the international douro natural park fostering the relationship between wine production and biodiversity/natural capital.
