Made from the oldest grapes on the property, elegant and understated but with a nice depth. The wine has aromas of fresh citrus such as mandarin and grapefruit, minerality, both on the nose and in the mouth, full with a persistent aftertaste. Only 2000 bottles of 'Barricas' are made, which mature in oak barrels, as the name suggests. The wood always appears to be superior integrated, giving it only complexity and extra roundness and taking it to another level of finesse. A clear example of the use of wood to enhance the Alvarinho grape, without wanting to score too much. A great wine that shows a different way of presenting the Alvarinho grape, producing a superior white wine.
Quinta do Regueiro from the sub-region of Monção e Melgaço is a typical Vinho Verde and embodies 21st century Portugal. Winemaker Paolo Rodriquez works with regional grapes, but not with guidance along pergolas. The vines are planted in regular rows and are guided along a wire. This produces optimally ripe grapes that give the wines a special power and a lot of character. The vineyards of the Quinta are on slopes with a surface of weathered granite that retains heat well. Its location is south, so that they can take full advantage of the solar heat.
