Portugal is best known for its red wines, but Douro whites can be delicious, too--like this lively blend of four native grape varieties.
What You Need To Know
Portugal's Douro Valley was designated an official wine region in 1758--that's a hundred years before Bordeaux. For most of the ensuing centuries, its wine trade was controlled by large shippers. But thanks to a change in laws in 1986, small producers like Quinta do Crasto are now able to bottle and export their own wines. Owned by the Roquette family for the last century or so, the estate's terraced vineyards hug the Douro River's steep banks and mainly produce red grapes for port. The Roquettes branched out into table wines in 1994; fruit for this apricot-inflected white was handpicked and fermented in steel tanks, which kept its flavors fruity and bright.
