O Produtor, tasting note published in April 27th 2019

Very fresh and mineral aroma, citrus and floral hints very typical of high-altitude Douro white wines. Fresh on the palate, vibrant and fruity with medium finish.

Castello D’Alba

Origin: old vines with an average altitude around 550 meters above sea level. We look for more acid grape varieties like Rabigato, or the blend of grapes of the old vines, where low crop levels allows a better balance between flavors and acidity. Vinification Hand-picked grapes. Cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16ºC. Very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. We made a great effort that all the pre-fermentation operations were carried out with great accuracy to preserve the intrinsic quality of the wine. Ageing: 4 months in stainless steel vats.

Allergens information

Rui Roboredo Madeira Vinhos

In one of the most remote areas of the Iberian Peninsula, on the border between the Douro Superior and Beira Alta regions, it was among family that its passion grew for the aromas and smells of this land that shapes our character.
After coming into contact with many cultures of living and making wine, in various parts of the globe, Rui Madeira returned to the great Douro valley convinced that they have the potential to make the best wines in the world.
 Out of respect for nature, due to the way we cultivate their vineyards and wines reflect his experiences, which smell and taste of land, of schist, damp granite, rock rose, wild flowers and fruit. 
It is in the winery that he makes wines with the character of our ‘terroir’, expressed through native grape varieties, which instil with a style of their own and an international profile.
