ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Maçanita Vinhos Douro Branco

Maçanita Vinhos Douro Branco exemplifies the confluence of richness and elegant minerality that is the hallmark of Douro whites. The indigenous Viosinho provides the backbone to this mineral-driven wine, showcasing the slate soil and high-altitude plantings that fuel this project. Fermented and aged all in stainless steel, Antonio and Joana very capably maintain the freshness and acidity in this wine, yielding a wine of purity and balance. On the nose, fresh floral aromas co-mingle with ripe yellow and green orchard fruit and a touch of slate. On the palate, bright and juicy, with mouth-filling concentration and refreshing acidity. A core of green and gold apple, pear, and white pepper is wrapped with pleasant floral and mineral flavors on the long finish.

About Maçanita Vinhos

Joana Maçanita is a dynamo. Her energy, intense focus, and passion for every facet of life are infectious—and nowhere is this more apparent than in the wines she makes. Her dedication to her craft is eclipsed only by her talent, and her project in the Douro Valley is a perfect showcase for her full-speed-ahead, accept-no-substitutes style. Working with her brother Antonio, Joana sources from old vineyards spread across the three subzones of the Douro Valley. In search of freshness and minerality above all else, Joana uses classic Douro grape varieties, sourced from plots planted at high altitudes. The wines that result are balanced, elegant, and a transparent expression of true Douro terroir.
