Intro to Casa do Arrabalde Vinho Verde –
Casa do Arrabalde Vinho Verde is a crisp fresh light wine from Portugal.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Casa do Arrabalde Vinho Verde has citrus and elegant floral aromas. The wine has a crystalline structure; dry wine with a remarkable balance and long lasting finish. This wine will develop well over the next few years.
Casa do Arrabalde is an estate, 5 hectares of vineyards, and located in the sub-region of Baião. The vineyards sit at an altitude of 490 meters, in granitic soil and are exposed to shifts in temperature due to the proximity of the Marão foothills. The vintage started cooler than most years, but moved into a hot, dry spring; bud break during the first fortnight of March with temperatures reaching 27 degC. Summer was characterised by an absence of precipitation, and above-average temperatures. Manual selection, de-stemming and a period of skin contact was followed by soft pneumatic pressing. The must fermented in stainless steel vats at low temperatures. No animal derivatives were used in the wine-making process making this wine vegan friendly. Special care taken during wine-making, minimising any intervention, with the purpose of producing a natural wine that expresses the plots of vines, grape varieties and climate.
The producer –
A&D Wines is a wine producing, family-owned company based in Baião, a sub-region in the Southeast Vinho Verde region. Our goal is to produce quality wines that express our land and the grape varieties we work with. Baião, where we are, is a transition area, located next to the border with the Douro region, which allows us to explore an unique terroir, where schist meets granite and where we have terraces and vineyards from 200 to more than 500 meters of altitude, allowing us to have a very diverse portfolio while only working with our own grapes, which are all grown in organic production mode.
Drink with –
Great with shell fish and also delicious as a chilled aperitif.
