Contraste Branco


Vintage 2014

Grape Varieties Codega de Larinho, Rabigato, Viosinho, others

"The 2013 Contraste is a blend of Rabigato, Codega de Larinho, Codega and Viosinho, with 30% of the juice aged in new French oak, the rest in tank. The 2013s, said owner Rita Marques, will emphasize minerality instead of floral and fruity notes of 2012, but had good concentration and were picked so as to avoid rain damage. She liked them a lot, she said. This sings for its beautiful freshness and elegance. Vibrant, sunny and lively, I do think it is a match for the 2012, showing its fine purity of fruit and beautiful integration of oak. It manages to maintain a certain, if subtle, stonewashed feel despite the oak." 90/100 eRobertParker on the 2013.
