The vineyards for the Redoma Branco are all at an altitude between 400 and 800 metres, this provides the necessary cooler growing conditions (particularly at night) and longer ripening times required for makeing a serious white wine. All of these vineyards have vines which are over 60 years old. The main grape variety is Rabigato, though there is a high proportion of Codega and there is also Donzelinho, Viosinho, Arinto and other varieties. After a first selection of grapes carried out in the vineyard, aanother selection was undertaken at the winery before destemming and gentle pressing. The must obtained was left to settle and
then transferred to small oak 228 lts casks of French oak, for natural fermentation. The wine was then aged in casks, on its lees, without stiring, for 9 months without malolactic fermentation. It is extremely fresh and elegant, with great complexity. There are citric and mineral aromas, apricots and notes of white peaches . The palate has crisp acidity and great intensity with full texture, with a raft of white fruit flavours and mineral overtones, the Redoma is very persistent , with very good ageing potential.
