Casa do Valle Grande Escolha

Grande Escolha

The Grande Escolha (‘great selection’) is the jewel in the crown for Casa do Valle. This wine is 100% Alvarinho
(aka Albariño) and in our opinion a very fine example. 2015 was a good vintage in Vinho Verde and with
careful selection of the best grapes from vineyards, Casa do Valle produced a very elegant white wine with
ripe fruit flavours. 15% of the wine undergoes barrel fermentation and gentle batonnage for 5 months, the
balance fermenting in steel: this adds weight and complexity to the fruit and a more harmonious character
overall. The wine obtained is a bright, pale straw colored wine, with an exuberant floral and tropical (passion
fruit and melon) driven aroma and a lot of fresh minerality. On the palate the structure makes this wine
complex, mineral, round, fresh and with a long, appealing and invigorating finish. This is a serious wine with
the perfect balance of fresh acidity, body and fruit character that demonstrates the great potential of
Portuguese Alvarinho. Superb with fresh, herbal sauces (i.e. sauce vierge), Thai cuisine, grilled fish. 90pts
