Claudia’s Reserve White

Claudia’s Reserve is a careful selection from the grapes of our best Quintas. We do not follow a recipe, the composition will vary from year to year as we express what nature gives us.




Pale green


Elegant and complex aromas. Slightly smoky with a citric fruits notes.


On the palate it presents a nice structure and complexity, with good freshness and mineral notes, round aftertaste.


Claudia’s Reserve White 2015

Mark Squires

Reasonably solid in the mid-palate, the most important issue here is its fine combo of depth, finesse and freshness. It handles its oak beautifully. Smooth and rounded, it should drink well, good on its own, but better with food. It finishes with just a bit of steel. The concentration is subtle – it doesn’t seem big and fat – but it is real enough. This Douro Branco is understated, but touches all the bases. This was not quite bottled when seen, but it is the final blend. June 2016.

Winemaking Details

The wet winter of 2014/15 was followed by a mellow spring with early flowering. May and June did not present a risk of disease and the yields were not affected. Summer was hot and dry leading to an early harvest, which took place during the first week of September. The hand picked grapes were brought to the winery and sorted. On the next day the liquid was decanted and fermented at a low temperature. It was bottled in March 2016 without malolactic fermentation after ageing for 6 months in new French oak barrel. Long batonnage helped to enrich its body and complexity.
