The 2011 BRANCO “PASSA” is a blend of Rabigato and Codega do Larinho, coming in at just 12.5% alcohol. This is becoming quite a nice value point in the lineup. I like it about as well as the regular Branco or more. The issue is as much style as quality-this Passa is more pure and unaffected. The regular Branco has more power. A nice follow up to the 2010, this has a hint of grass and is perky and fresh. Yet, it has some solidity, too. It not just an ethereal summer weight white. Happily, it also has very nice penetration and grip on the finish. It seems pretty solid for the entry level and it also tastes just great. I loved its purity and freshness. This is going to make a lot of folks happy this summer when it is likely at peak. It should drink pretty decently for a couple of years, but it will not likely reward cellaring and it is the type of wine that is best encountered fresh and young no matter how long it theoretically lasts. It is a beauty right now. Drink now-2015.

Wine maker notes
Passa White is sourced from an estate vineyard near the village of Murca at an altitude of 1,650 feet. The high altitude, cool climate, and schist and granite soil provides ideal conditions for growing white grapes. The wine is a blend of Rabigato and Codega do Larinho with an average vine age of 20 years. Fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks over 15 days at low temperatures, which preserves the fresh flavors of the grapes. The ensuing five months of lees contact adds just enough texture to create a perfectly balanced wine.
