Inspired by the stunning Porta 6, I have gone on to try wines from all the main wine growing areas and from budget to premium price points. For me, Portugal currently represents the best value for money in Europe and Portugal Vineyards have an excellent range of wines at affordable prices supported by great service and very reasonable shipping costs.

Winemaking:
Every year we choose the best barrels to bottle Redoma Reserva, although we taste all the wines without knowing there provenance, are consistently the same vineyards producing the ones we consider the best wines. For us the best wines are those that can express the sense of place, of the mica slate soil, of the high altitude slopes of the Douro valley, the mineral character, the nerve, the intensity and complexity are the characteristics we search. Redoma Reserve is the elegant expression of Douro whites. Vineyard burst was uncommonly early in 2011, all the cycle was anticipated and harvest started earlier than ever before, nevertheless higher planted vineyards went slower than others, and when harvest was done all wines presented good quantity of malic acid, very important for the freshness in palate of the white wines where malolactic fermentation is not done. Grapes were harvest during the day and transporter to the winery in a cooling truck, after sorting, grapes were pressed quickly during the night without any maceration, and decanted during 24 hours at low temperature. The wine fermented and aged in French oak barrel in the presence of the fine lees until bottling. No malolactic was done.

Rabigato, Códega, Donzelinho, Arinto
