Porrais Reserva 2019

Douro DOC

A delicious, crisp, stony white from the Douro? Isn’t that the home of magnificent ports? It is but the Douro’s high sloping vineyards are ideal for this citrusy style, too. Enjoy intense, creamy, lemon curd fruit underscored by brilliant minerality.

With its spicy peach and zingy lemon flavours, Porrais Reserva shows that the Douro is about much more than just port these days – the region’s whites offer superb complexity and richness at very reasonable prices. Quinta de Porrais was in fact once the property of Dona Antónia Ferreira – a 19th century pioneer of the port trade who owned many of the Douro region’s most important estates. This estate’s vines, planted high on dizzyingly steep slopes, are on average 65 years old (many of them are well over 100), hence the great freshness, intensity and mineral complexity of the wine. Combining Rabigato, for ripe fruit and zippy edge, with Códega do Larinho, for its aromatics, this delicious white makes a lovely partner for sauced fish.
