STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Portugal is currently centre-stage in the wine world for new and interesting white blends of quality. Few other regions can match the dedication winemakers here show towards the abundance of native grapes at their disposal. The long history of Port production in the Douro means that the art of blending reaches new heights here. With 400 years of tradition behind it, the winemakers at Quinta Dos Avidagos are leading the charge. The grapes in this Reserva are more commonly associated with the production of white port and as such, give us a singularly rare and distinctive blend.
