2014 Casa Ferreirinha "Planalto" Branco Reserva Douro

SKU #1218996 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Branco Reserva Planalto (Casa Ferreirinha) is a white bargain even though it is a mass-market wine (about 125,000 cases). It is an unoaked blend of 35% Viosinho; 15% each of Malvasia Fina, Gouveio, Códega and Arinto; and 5% Moscatel. This shows good purity of fruit, a lovely, fresh feel, some viscosity and some precision. It hangs together well and drinks great. This is a very good vintage for it. (MS)  (8/2015)

Wine Spectator

 *Smart Buys* A lush and spicy style, with plenty of buttery notes to the baked apple, pear and almond tart flavors. Shortbread accents show on the long, rich finish. (KM)  (7/2016)

Bright, steely, and yellow fruited, yet also richly textured with a creamy mouthfeel, this blend of local grape varieties (Viosinho, Gouveio, Arinto, Codega, Malvasia and Moscatel) is delicious. Famous for the highly collectible, very expensive Barca Velha, Casa Ferreirinha also happens to make some of the best value reds and whites in all Portugal. Recommended.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
