Characteristics of Conceito Contraste Branco

Conceito Contraste Branco is a white wine made with the Rabigato, Arinto and Códega native varieties in the DOC Douro by the Conceito winery.

This winery is located in the Portuguese town of Vila Nova de Foz Côa. This is a family winery that started out in the 40s with 86 hectares of vineyards. Rita Ferreira Marqués, a young winemaker who has travelled through the most prestigious wine regions in the world, has now joined in with this project with the aim of producing quality wines by fusing tradition with innovation. She belongs to the “Young Winemakers of Portugal”, a group of young Portuguese winemakers who are breathing new life into the denomination under the motto “together uphill”.

Conceito Contraste Branco comes from vines with an average age of 10 years old, planted on granite soil and lying at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level. They always use environmentally-friendly agriculture, enhancing the natural balance of the strain. When the grapes reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested manually and taken to the winery in 20 kg boxes.

When the grapes reach the winery, they are cooled and then pressed with a pneumatic press. The resulting must is cold decanted and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Finally, Conceito Contrast Branco ages for 6 months in new and used French oak barrels (30% of the wine) and stainless steel tanks (70%) with periodic bâtonnage.

Conceito Contraste Branco is a rich white wine that reveals the DOC Douro’s native varieties in all their splendour. A wine with concentrated fruit and minerality.
