2020 QUINTA DE LA ROSA BRANCO. Douro Valley, Portugal
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: This is Port country - i.e. source of some of the ripest, most intense red grapes in the world. The secret for successful whites is to use grapes from higher altitudes (therefore cooler) above the Douro Valley
Grape Variety: 45% Viosinho, 55% Rabigato, Gouveio, Códega do Larinho and 'other mixed Douro varieties'
Producer: Quinta de la Rosa is run by English woman Sophia Berqvist. The estate was given as a christening present to Sophia's grandmother in 1906!
Food Match: Aromatic and light but with good concentration, this is a charming aperitif, or a good match for veggy starters or fish mains. Particularly good as a bridge between a fizzy aperitif and the serious red that inevitably follows
