CASA DO VALLE VINHO VERDE 2016

Casa do Valle is located near the legendary Cavez Bridge, a place often mentioned in the work of the famous Portuguese 19th-century writer Camilo Castelo Branco, and spreads out, protected by the mountain ranges of Barroso and Alvao, across the hillsides of the Tamega River. The excellent exposure of the vines at this estate, located in the Basto sub region, along with rigorous selection in the vineyards and careful winemaking processes gives rise to wines of world-renowned quality.

Casa do Valle is the name of the manor house of the estate, which produces the Vinho Verde of the same name. Owned by the Sousa Botelho family, winemaking here dates back to the 18th century and features a mix of the ancient enforcado (tree-trained vines) and ramada (trellis) training systems for the red grapes and the modern single-wire training system for the white grapes.

The main noble grape varieties used for the white wines are the Alvarinho, Arinto, Azal and Loureiro. For red and rose wines the grape varieties are Vinhao, the predominant red-grape variety of the Vinho Verde Region, Rabo de Ovelha, and Touriga Nacional.

With a total area of 170 ha, of which 55 hectares are under vines, Casa do Valle is one of the largest production Quintas in the Vinho Verde Region, using exclusively grapes produced at the estate.

The 2016 Branco is a blend of 40% Arinto, 25% Alvarinho, 20% Avesso and 15% Azal, unoaked and this dry white presents a bright, pale straw color, an elegant floral, citric and tropical fruits aroma. Its a very fresh and elegant wine displaying a lengthy classic finish.
