Luis Pato Vinhas Velhas Branco 2016 - Douro Valley, Portugal


The Story

Luis Pato is one of the leading winemakers in the Beiras region of Portugal, where he has helped to modernize some winemaking practices as well as lift the quality of the region's wines. Luis was a chemical engineer before taking over his parent's winery in the 1980's. Immediately he began to experiment with his red and white wine production, honing his skills over the years to help create wines of excellent quality. Today he has 65 hectares of land that he uses to make wonderful red, white and sparkling wines. 

M+Q Notes

The Vinhas Velhas Branco is a blend of 50% Bical grown on chalky-clay soil with 25% Cerceal and 25% Sercialinho grown on sandy soils. The grapes are fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to retain their freshness. The wine is bright with an herby freshness and subtle nutty aromatics that compliment the citrus fruit and white  floral notes. Broad on the palate with great intensity of flavour, pair this wine with seafood dishes that would welcome a dash of freshness.

Food Suggestion

Asparagus, parmesan, chilli
