O produtor, tasting note published in May 25th 2018

Mineral and citric aroma of grapefruit and exotic fruits, with discreet barrel notes well integrated. Very persistent and fresh mouth with citric notes and very lively acidity, balanced by fat and well-structured notes of the barrel ageing, foreseeing a great longevity.

Quinta da Pedra Escrita

Quinta da Pedra Escrita estate is located in Freixo de Numão – Douro Superior, with an average altitude of 575 meters. The windy and dry soils of the Estate are mainly of granite, sandy and very poor in nutrients. Here I grew my first vineyard, always believing that the granite soils give us wines with highly complex aromas and great longevity, like in the old times, with very concentrated grapes due the low yields. This is a tradition that we want to bring back to a world of increasingly stereotyped wines, and that emphasizes the unique character of the Douro’s white wines. Vinification: Hand-picked grapes to small perforated boxes of 15 kg. The grapes are pressed without crushing and without destemming under an inert atmosphere in order to preserve all the aromatic potential of the grapes. A great effort is made to ensure that all prefermentation operations are carried out to the strictest possible extent and are therefore responsible for the intrinsic quality of the future wine preserving its primary aromas. Ageing: Fermentation and ageing stirring the fine lees “batonnage” in French oak barrels of 500 Lts until bottling in June.

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.
