Branco - Quinta da Pedra Alta - DOC Douro - Portugal
Quinta da Pedra Alta
Pedra a Pedra Branco is a deliciously dry blend of two native Portuguese grape varieties - Rabigato (52%) and Gouveio (48%). It has delicate citrus and tropical notes and a wonderful texture which sets it apart from other dry white wines. It is a marvellous partner to fish dishes and a wonderful example of the potential Portugal has as a wine making country.
Quinta da Pedra Alta is located in the Cima Corgo sub region of Portugal’s famous Douro valley. It is a hot area where the vineyards are planted at heights of up to 550 meters where the temperatures are cooler. Production is focused on native grape varieties which are all planted in terraced vineyards on poor schist soils.
