Casa do Arrabalde 2013 Portuguese white wine

Casa do Arrabalde 2013

White Wine | Regional Minho | 12,5% vol.

A dry white wine of extraordinary distinction. Casa do Arrabalde, produced in the Vinho Verde region, presents a citrus hue and crystalline appearance. It is an aromatically complex wine, marked by floral notes, reflecting the combination of the white grapes Alvarinho, Avesso and Arinto, giving it a freshness and balance, which lingers on the palate in a long and pleasant finish.


In 2013 the Winter was cooler and with unusual precipitation that contributed to the late ripening of the grapes. In April a strong frost destroyed part of the most precocious Avesso. A strong change of temperature at the end of June led to an accelerated growing process. The harvest was hand-picked by varietal, with manual selection, and later fermented in stainless steel vats.


This wine is made solely from regional varieties grown at the estate. The use of sustainable agriculture practices, reflect a white wine whose characteristics are defined by the natural conditions of its place.

Grapes Varieties


Alvarinho 30%

The emblematic Alvarinho grape is one Portugal’s most easily recognized and finest white grape varietal, typically grown in the vinho verde region. Grape yield is low, with small bunches and thick skin. It is rustic with strong aromas and flavours that lead to complex and harmonious portuguese white wines.


Arinto 20%

Grape variety of great quality that produces vibrant and aromatic portuguese white wines, typically grown in the vinho verde region. Also known by the name Pedernã, it has good acidity and a mineral character that goes well with its citrus and tree fruit flavours. Arinto has bunches of a medium size with small grapes that are tightly together and lead to medium yields.


Avesso 50%

A high quality white grape variety that leads to full bodied aromatic and flavorful portuguese white wines. This varietal can result in wines with citrus and tree fruit aromas along with subtle hints of tropical fruit. Avesso has medium-sized bunches with large yellow and green berries. High-yielding and rustic, this grape is planted primarily in Baião, in the vinho verde region of Portugal.
