Wine Review Report :

Last reviewed: 4 May, 2020
The area named after the river of the same name, with around 20,000 hectares of vineyards, was classified as DOC in 1990 and is located in the middle of the Beiras region in the north of Portugal. The viticulture goes back to ancient Greece. Especially where vineyards have existed for centuries, one finds numerous strange hollows and depressions in the rocks in the form of stone basins (Lagaretas). Probably grapes were pressed in these installations. This typical Portuguese method of crushing the grapes in the Lagares (stone troughs) is still practised today

The white grape variety comes from Portugal. Synonyms are Arinto de Alcobaça, Bical de Bairrada, Borrado das Moscas, Fernão Pires Galego, Pintado das Moscas, Pintado dos Pardais and Torrontés.

The synonym Borrado das Moscas (engl. fly droppings) indicates the small dark spots on the berries. The very...

Common name or synonym (many names for one variety) and homonym (one name for many varieties) for many different, unrelated grape varieties, particularly in Italy, Spain and Portugal.

In summary, the grape varieties with "Malvasia" in their name have a genetically diverse background and show an equally heterogeneous morphology (external appearance). This means that there are no particular Malvasia-specific characteristics. The name...

The white grape variety (also Salgueirinho) originates from Portugal. The early to medium ripening vine is moderately productive. It yields acidic, full-bodied white wines with significant aromas of paprika, roses, violets and lemons, and when aged, resin and hazelnut. These tend to oxidation. The variety is grown almost exclusively in the Dão area. The area under cultivation in 2010 was just under 300 hectares
