Grape: 100% Codega do Larinho. Region: Portugal> Douro D.O.C. Notes: Organic farming, stainless steel, native yeast, very old vines (100+ years).
Description: Códega do Larinho is a pale-skinned grape grown mostly in the Douro and Tras-os-Montes regions in the northeast of Portugal. Typically susceptible to mildew, which is perhaps another reason for the variety not being used widespread. The vineyard is tended by Francisco and Joao, located at the Volta de Andreza, the most picturesque and steepest terraced banks along the Douro River. Floral and fragrant variety with soft acidity and lots of minerality in part to the black schist soil composition in the vineyards.
