Quinta da Muradella Candea Blanco 2016
|Brand||Quinta da Muradella|
Wine AdvocateThe white 2016 Candea Blanco is a blend of equal parts Dona Blanca, Verdello and Treixadura from 20-year-old vineyards in the village of Tamagos at 370 meters in altitude on clay soils. It fermented at low temperature in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and was kept with the lees for one year, but the lees were not stirred. This has the austere profile of the cooler vintages, where the whites from Monterrei excel and show the rocky minerality. This is more about soils than grapes, and the palate also reveals the texture. This is incredible for the price. 6,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018. There is no 2017 of this white, as they lost the grapes as a result of the killer frost that year. So, it will come back with 2018.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
