Our Vinho Verde Vinha dos Ingleses White is composed of the following grapes varieties – 50% Loureiro, 25% Trajadura and 25% Pedreña. White colored citrine. It’s a fantastic and top quality vinho verde.
White Vinho Verde wines are citrus or straw-colored with rich, fruity and floral aromas, depending on the grapes that are used. They have a balanced palate, and are intense and very refreshing.
Though existing in almost the entire region of Vinhos Verdes, it is originally from the valley of the River Lima. Although it is a very productive and fertile grape variety, it has only recently been considered “noble”.
Loureiro”s bunches are big and not very compact, while the berries are medium-sized and yellowish or greenish coloured.
Loureiro produces high acidity wines, with very strong floral and fruity aromas.
It produces “monovarietal” wines (single grape variety), but is also often used in blend wines (mixture of several grape varieties), combined with Trajadura and Pederña.
Trajadura is originally from the Vinhos Verdes region, particularly the sub-region of Monção, though it has expression in Galicia (Spain). It quickly spread to other sub-regions, being grown in almost the entire region of Vinhos Verdes.
This grape variety has good production. Its bunches are medium-sized, very compact and made up of big yellowish green berries.
Wines produced with this grape variety don”t have intense aromas and are usually a little unbalanced. Trajadura is usually blended with Loureiro or, sometimes, with Alvarinho (grape varieties from the same region and more aromatic), in order to endow the wines with a higher alcohol content and better balance.
Pederña is a very versatile grape variety and, for this reason, it is grown in almost every wine region. Pederña bunch is big, compact and made up of small or medium-sized, yellowish berries. This grape variety is usually used in the production of blend (more than one grape variety) and sparkling wines. Produces high acidity monovarietal wines (single grape variety), which are citrine coloured and markedly floral and fruity (when young).
