Quinta do Crasto Douro Branco

A crisp, fresh unoaked blend of indigenous varieties-Gouveio, Viosinho and Rabigato.
Just gorgeous, this is probably the best regular Branco Crasto has made. Perfumed with citrus and stone fruits, a touch of herb too.
Jancis Robinson Wine of The Week 19/8/2016
"It has all the lemony freshness you thirst for on a sunny day, along with a light aroma of orange blossom, the flavour of fresh pears and crisp acidity all natural despite the sunny warmth of the Douro Valley and a vibrant but creamy intensity thanks to the time spent on the lees after cool fermentation at 14 C in stainless-steel tanks. And it's not all about fruit, there's also an attractively dry stony aftertaste giving it a surprisingly long finish at this price. Even better for quenching the thirst, the alcohol is just 12%."
Really bright and zesty, hard to think this is a white from the Douro, so fresh and minerally. Just 12% alcohol but lacking in nothing, lovely green crisp finish with real vitality. Fresh fish is the call, but also a lovely aperitif style.JH
