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. 6 months in French oak barrels. Barrels are stored in a rack system with “rollers”, which enables barrels to be rotated to stir the fine lees without the introduction of oxygen. New barrels: 50%; Used barrels: 50% French oak barrels: 85% - French oak barrels with acacia heads: 15%
