(2019) This blend of aromatic varieties including Voishino, Malvasia and Moscatel, was a Wine of the Week in its previous vintage, and this could easily have made that slot too: beautifully fresh, perfumed and crisp, yet with a bit of slippery texture and weight, good orchard and stone-fruit concentration, and a zippy finish.
(2018) A remarkable wine this in many, from the producer of one of Portugal's rarest and most expensive table wines, Barca Velha. Barca Velha is a red, as might be expected from the heat of the Douro, but here in Planalto we have an inexpensive, crisp and refreshing, delicate white. The secret to that is altitude, with numerous indigenous grape varieties grown on the upper slopes and picked early to retain acidity and freshness. The result is a wine with a delicate floral and lime freshness and limpidity, but gorgeous texture and big thwack of seaside salinity and pithy lemon to finish.  Just terrific - flavour, elegance and enjoyment in this modestly-priced wine. Note that the Wine Society also sells in half bottles. Watch the video for more information and food-matching suggestions.
(2017) Who'd have thunk it? A fresh as a daisy, zipping and vibrant white wine from the baking heat of the Douro Valley, engine-room of big robust reds and, of course, Port. The secret here from Port maestros the Symington Family is altitude, grape choice, and early picking. A blend of aromatic varieties including Voishino, Malvasia and Moscatel, it has a heady perfume, all white flowers, tropical fruit and citrus - maybe even a hint of a Sauvignon-like elderflower in there too. The palate has a bit of weight, but lovely freshness, ensured by a grapefruity bite of acidity. Watch the video for more information and food-matching suggestions.
(2016) A blend of native Voisinho, Cerceal, Folgazão and Rabigato, the colour is pale gold and the nose offers quite delicate flowers and fresh sliced apple with a little creamy, oatmeal note. In the mouth it has lovely balance, the fresh and appetising juiciness of apples again, a crystal clear acidity and long finish with sweetness and crisp citrus acids nicely balanced.
