Tasting Note

How do you make a white Burgundy lookalike out of obscure Portuguese grapes in the place most famous for Port wine? We have absolutely no idea, but through some strange alchemy, Crasto have done exactly this. This is a seriously sumptuous bottle, and we highly recommend it.

Winemaking

The grapes, coming from the Douro Superior sub-region, were taken to the winery in plastic boxes and rigorously inspected on arrival. The grapes were then destemmed and pressed. The must was transferred to stainless steel tanks where it remained for 48 hours at 8ºC for decanting. The alcoholic fermentation began in stainless steel tanks and the wine was then transferred to French oak barrels where fermentation continued for 45 days at 14ºC. Aged in barrels for six months.

Press

  • 90/100 - Classy oak expression on the nose with warm lime and vanilla. Palate framed by citrus acidity and oak notes: needs time.

  • ‘Fresh herbal and light coriander aromas,’ began Andre Luis Martins of the Cavalry & Guards Club, who found ‘rich citrus, Cox apples and pear on the palate, which has a charming finish’. ‘Ripe, rounded and refreshing, with tangy acidity and a mineral end,’ added team leader Sarah Jane Evans MW.

    • Silver Medal
  • Christmas white wines are never easy to pick; what you want is a great all rounder, which will cope with all the richness of the trimmings, be they herby, or fruity. Ring the changes with this award-winning, but relatively unknown Portuguese dry white, from the Verdehlo grape, Quinta do Crasto Douro Superior White. With fragrant aromas of peaches and baked apples, and ripe, buttery flavours, it’s got elegance and style in spades, and enough richness and pzazz to cope with whatever is thrown at it!
