Quinta da Calçada Vinhas Velhas Blanco 2015
The 2015 Vinhas Velhas (Quinta da Calçada) is the winery's special project from its 1917 vines, said to be the region's oldest. A field blend, it features Arinto, Azal, Donzelinho and others, all in used French oak for eight months. With very little residual sugar and plenty of acidity, it seems quite dry. Not yet bottled or released when seen, this looks to be the best wine ever from Calçada. Simply brilliant, it combines energy and concentration. Its bright and intense demeanor goes well with the solid mid-palate. The fruit and acidity balance the oak brilliantly. This is, to be sure, a barrel sample, but if nothing goes wrong, it looks like a statement wine. In a great vintage, this is the year this relatively new bottling rounds into form, easily eclipsing the few older ones in this report. Drink date: 2016-2026. Score - 93-94.
