Description

Quinta do Vale Meão Meandro Douro White 2018/19


The Meandro White is an interesting blend in equal proportions of the native varieties Arinto and Rabigato, with a complement of freshness and notes of ripe fruits. Vinified in a traditional vertical press, and matrured for seven months on the lees, the wine results in with a powerful body, full of personality and showing a smooth, rather concentrated feel. The Rabigato gives the body, while the Arinto gives a clean crisp edge, cutting through the initial impression of dense fruit. A beautifully constructed wine that is well balance, and built for longevity.
