Wine promotions cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons. The Wine: Today, Planalto is recognised as one of the Douro’s standard-bearers for premium white wines. This recognition is the result of detailed research undertaken over many years, through the careful selection of grape varieties and the use of the most modern winemaking technology available for its production.
Tasting Notes: Casa Ferreirinha Planalto White Reserva 2013 is bright lemon in colour and has a very intense and complex bouquet, with a prevalence of white fruits (melon and pear), fresh vegetable notes of green shrubs and some mineral notes. Its palate shows great harmony and a fine body, with fruity and mineral flavours again in evidence. It has a long and balanced finish.
Winemaking: On arrival at the company’s winery in Vila Real, the grapes, hand-picked in the higher reaches and plateaus of the Douro, were de-stemmed and softly crushed. There followed cold decanting of the must which, after acquiring the required limpidity, were fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 16ºC and 18ºC for about 20 days.
Maturation: The wines selected for Casa Ferreirinha Planalto White Reserva 2013 were kept separately by variety and/or vineyard at low temperatures. After several tasting sessions and a strict selection the final blend was prepared, and bottled after clarification and stabilisation.
