Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that makes amazing wine that showcases local grapes. This red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features a local grape, called Castelão. Native to the soils of Portugal, Castelão. It is unusual, finding a better home in the drier and harsher climate of Portugal than the normally more grape friendly soils of temperate climates. When well cared for, the wine that results is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and slight hints of floral notes.

A wine made to sip on a sunny afternoon near the pool, or serve it as a perfect complement to a light chicken or crab salad, a hearty vegetarian pizza, fresh fruit and mild cheeses, or a classic dessert like strawberry cheesecake or apple crisp.
Lot 497 Triage White Blend
Uplifted nose of apricot, banana, and lemon custard. When this hits your lips, the first thing you’ll notice is that it’s much drier than the other Columbia Valley white wine releases we’ve released in the past, delivering a juicy texture with very low residual sugar. A real crowd pleaser.

Portugal is truly a wonderland of exotic grapes that many in America have never been exposed to before. This Albarrada white, an exclusive wine, is a great example.
