Casa Ferreirinha Planalto Douro Branco Reserva 2019

The Casa Ferreirinha Planalto Douro Branco Reserva is a crisp and refreshing white wine made from a blend of indigenous grapes grown at altitude in the high reaches of the Douro ('Planalto' translates as “high plains”). The grapes for the blend were harvested by hand and selected for their balance between flavour intensity and freshness. At the winery each grape variety is vinified separately and after fermentation kept in stainless steel tanks for six months before the final blend was assembled. Lemon yellow in colour Planalto displays citrus and tropical fruit aromas alongside with subtle floral nuances and a touch of minerality. On the palate, the wine is crisp with a lively acidity balancing the concentrated fruit flavours and a clean, fresh finish.

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 grape varieties in present commercial production, yet this probably includes the same grapes under other names. With the increase of DNA fingerprinting it is thought that the real number might come down closer to 5,000.
