Luis Pato 'Vinhas Velhas' Branco

Cracka Review

Beiras is not a wine region, so much as a political province, encompassing the D.O.’s of Douro, Dão and Bairrada. So disaffected with D.O. Bairrada is Luis Pato that he has ‘de-classified’ himself out of Bairrada, instead using the catch-all of Vinho Regional Beiras. Bical is the predominant local white, and Baga the red.

50% Bical/30% Cerceal/20% Sercialinho. Orange oil, peach and citrus pith, nutty aromatics with white floral. Effortlessly balanced, easy and caressing, possibly the best expression of this textured, sophisticated white.
