Intro to Cheda Douro Branco –
Cheda Douro Branco is an aromatic wine full of refreshing elegant tropical fruit and citrus fruit flavours.
Full tasting notes and wine making –
Cheda Branco Douro is a very fresh and fruity wine. This lemon coloured wine is aromatic, revealing tropical fruit like plums and watermelon. It is fresh and fruity on the palate and it is very elegant with balanced acidity and some minerality. A beautiful contrast of citrus and tropical fruit.
The grapes used to make this wine are from the family vineyards planted along the Douro valley that have an average age of twenty five to thirty years. They include the native varieties Malvasia Fina, Gouveio and Siria and the Branco grapes are selected from vineyards at a higher altitude than for the tinto wines. Fermentation and aging of the wine is carried out in stainless steel tanks and they don’t undergo any oak aging at all.
The producer –
Lavradores translates as ‘farmers’ in Portuguese. Cheda wines are made by fifteen families of farmers that have been making wines in the Douro for decades.
Together they own nineteen Quintas or vineyards throughout the three sub-regions of the Douro Valley. They came together to share resources, expertise, tradition and innovation. To make wines that reflect the great diversity of terroir in the Douro under one roof, with one approach and one winemaking team. Paulo Ruão and Olga Martins are the two incredibly talented winemakers behind the Lavradores de Feitoria range of wines. Their Cheda range offers fantastic value from the heart of the Douro Valley in northern Portugal – bright, youthful, approachable styles of wine that fit comfortably onto any wine merchant’s shelf or wine list.
Drink with –
The Cheda Branco is great with plenty of different types of seafood, pasta and poultry dishes.
