Samarrinho is one of the greatest examples of the continuous inovation and experimentation projects ocurring at Real Companhia Velha, with the 2013 Vintage presenting the World with it’s first ever Samarrinho single-varietal. Our viticulture team led a profound study if this grape to discover its origins and character, and we found its constant presence within Douro’s Oldest Vines, which traditionally are composed of a Field Blend. Amongst many other varieties, we have selected Samarrinho for experimentation for its attractive bundle, which revealed nobility and enologic potential.
8ºC – 10ºC
100% Samarrinho. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks, followed by an ageing process of 6 months in the same vessels, allowing a good preservation of this fabulous grape’s freshness and varietal character.
A great Douro White that primes for immense freshness showing light nuances of minerality, followed by charming notes of white fruit and hints of floral. Reveals intensity, yet delicacy, with much freshness on the palate, offering layers, and layers of flavours and a reassuring minerality, finishing-off long and lasting with very peculier characteristics.
