Crushed & Cured

Adega de Redondo, Porta da Ravessa Branco Reserva, IGP Alentejo, Portugal, 2021


This is a fine and intensely lifted white wine with luscious white stone fruit notes and hints of spice from the oak component. On the palate it's elegant, with peaches and cream character, supported by ripe citrus acidity and a long harmonious finish.

The Fernão Pires and Arinto components are fermented in stainless steel vats, with a controlled temperature at 17ºC, whilst the Verdelho, which make up 10% f the blend, ferments in new French oak barrels at 17ºC. The components are blended together for added mouthfeel, palate weight and textural appeal.
