Crasto Superior
White

This wine takes its name from the location of the vineyard from which the grapes come: Douro Superior (Upper Douro). The grapes used to make this wine come from our property Quinta da Cabreira where we have 114 hectares of recently planted vines.

With a bright lemon colour, it is very aromatic on the nose, with vibrant citrus notes perfectly combined with delicate floral hints and a fresh, marked minerality. Harmonious beginning that leads to a balanced wine with a fresh texture. The palate offers lemony and mineral notes and a vibrant acidity that provides great persistence to the finish.
