Portal d'Azenha

Roland Heenen from Flanders owns the Portal d'Azenha estate in the Douro valley, whose superb terraced vineyard is mainly known outside Portugal for its port wines. Moreover, he is the only Belgian to have started producing these mutated wines! Portal d'Azenha has around six hectares of its own and on a rental basis. It also buys grapes from other wine growers: the range actually includes ten or more wines and port wines. Dividing his time between Belgium and Portugal, Roland Heenen has taken on the services of several local wine experts, including José Alves, who owns the Quinta da Rede, where the estate’s white and red wines are vinified and matured.

Branco

Portugal has a host of native grape varieties... with fairly improbable names. Only Moscatel sounds appealing to us, as it corresponds to Muscat (the Muscat Blanc variety is mainly found at Petits Grains in the Douro valley). Roland Heenen vinifies each of these grape varieties separately. The malolactic fermentation takes place after a three-week maceration period.


   Pale yellow robe.

   Fairly fine nose characterised by floral aromas and the ‘nutmeg’ hint typical of the Moscatel.

   Fruity in the mouth as well, with a very slight sweetness.

   Its freshness makes this an ideal aperitif wine. Can also be served with certain sweet-and-sour dishes.

   8-10°C.
