Planalto Douro Branco Reserva

, 2019


Douro 75cl

The latest incarnation of this popular Portuguese wine.
I first came across this on holiday in Madeira and we've stocked it ever since ( it also has a popular following on Vivino)
A multi varietal blend of indigenous grape varieties that's usually just off dry , grapey and aromatic. Having drunk a lot of this wine over the years this is the weakest release I can remember sadly , it's OK but has lost that off dry verve and drinkability it normally has ( it's not helped by the fact that it's very slow to the UK market , the 2020 release will be being drunk in Portuguese bars probably by the end of November, unless the curse of 2020 has caused a glut)
flabbier and drier than the last two vintages, wife and I very sad ;(
