Casa Ferreirinha ‘Planalto’ White Reserva 2019, Douro. Portuguese blends are a bit of a Majestic speciality – and this seamless seven-grape white blend was too good to pass up. It’s from the Douro – but is as unlike a Douro wine as it’s possible to be. Because the Douro is hot – and most famous for grapes used to make fortified wine. So how is this wine so crisp and refreshing? It’s down to winemaker Luís Sottomayor. He carefully chose grapes from high-altitude vineyards where the temperatures are cooler – so the flavours are fresher. High in the valleys here, the soil is poor so yields from each vine are low. The balance of freshness from the temperature and intense tropical and citrus fruit flavour from the low yielding vines makes magic. As for what to eat with it – something this refreshing is just crying out for some octopus à lagareiro..
