2018 CONTRASTE, Conceito. Douro, Portugal

Bin:  106

Alcohol percentage:  13%




Conceito is located in the Teja Valley, on the southern edge of the Douro region; the coolest part (not so good for classic Port). They have 86 hectares divided between 5 different Quintas (Estates), all managed organically.

Grape variety:

Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Códega, and Arinto; a third fermented and matured for six months in French oak; the rest in stainlesss steel.


Rita Marques runs her family estate. To quote from their website: “Rita was the bridge that allowed the family owned company, led by her mother Carla Ferreira, to combine History with the ambition to create news brands, such as Rita combines youth with wisdom and technical know-how with intuition.
Disappointed with Mechanical Engineering, Rita chose the earth and the wine route. Graduated in Oenology in Vila Real and Bordeaux, carefully chose her career, learning and working side by side with some of the most influential winemakers in the world, in some of the most fascinating terroirs in the world: Bordeaux, California, South Africa and New Zealand.”

Old Bridge rating:

The oak is subtle. This is concentrated, dry, serious white wine that would be impossible to spot if tasted blind. It has unique character.
