Planalto is, today, one of the best-known white wine brands from the Douro Demarcated Region; its reputation built on years of careful research, a rigorous selection of the grape varieties, and the use of the best winemaking technology.

2017 was a particularly hot and dry year. Rainfall was about 50% lower than normal during the months responsible for vegetative growth. The maturation phase was also affected by the reduced quantities of available water. For these reasons, the start of the harvest was one of the earliest recorded: taking place on the 7th and 22nd of August for white and red grapes respectively.

Grapes for the Planalto were selected from the higher zones of the Douro region. After gentle destemming, the grapes are pressed and subsequently undergo low temperature decanting with strict enological controls in place. A long alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures between 60°F–64°°C follows. The final blend is made after a rigorous selection process and takes place in Avintes, where it receives clarification and stabilization treatment prior to bottling.

The final wine is a bright citrine color. It has intense and complex aromas of white, tropical and citrus fruit, alongside harmonious hints of wild shrubs. The palate is vibrant, with well-integrated acidity. Further notes of citrus fruit and flowers invite a long and balanced finish.
