Vale d'Aldeia "Foral de Meda" Branco Douro DOC 2018
This fine restaurant-quality imported wine is not available at LCBO stores.
Our Tip: We tasted a bottle of this vintage in May 2021. The nose was lovely and big, and the refreshing grapefruit flavour reminded us of a certain more expensive New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. A perfect wine for warm/hot weather and good all year round, really.
Grape Varieties: Viosinho, Rabigato and Gouveio.
Origin: Meda, in Douro Superior (sub-region of Douro wine region), 550 m.a.s.l.
Ageing: No oak aging.
Tasting Notes: Bright citrine color. Big, citrusy aroma with tropical notes. In the mouth, it delivers refreshing grapefruit flavor with well-balanced acidity and medium body.
Food Pairing: Try with grilled fish dishes; light mixed salads; shellfish such as stone crab, mussels and clams; bacalhau (salt cod); light chicken and rabbit dishes made with white sauces; and pasta with vegetables and cheese; mushroom omelet; goat cheese and Brie or Camembert.
Serving Temperature: 8-10°C (chilled).
