"This is a bold wine, full of ripe apple and peach fruit flavors. It is delicious, juicy with a tight texture and zesty acidity. There is an opulent, rich aftertaste that is mouth-filling and perfumed. The wine is ready to drink now although it will be better from 2017. -RV"

The 2015 Grande Escolha is an Alvarinho partly (20%) fermented in French oak. It is dry and comes in with 13.5% alcohol. Beautifully focused and concentrated, this powerful Vinho Verde has fine concentration, precision and focus. It finishes with a bang, its underlying acidity easily providing support. The freshness comes through and lifts the fruit. Another terrific effort--they are not side-by-side, but this is likely even better than last year's--this is a super bargain. It should surpass the 2014, which is more likely to fade fast, but it was a bit unevolved when tasted. It looks, though, like the best wine I've seen from this property. Let me sneak in one late comment, though, from my Vinho Verde trip: the upcoming Special Reserve or Special Edition, as yet unbottled, looks even better."
"Casa do Valle is located near the legendary Cavez Bridge, a place often mentioned in the work of the famous Portuguese 19th-century writer Camilo Castelo Branco, and spreads out, protected by the mountain ranges of Barroso and Alvao, across the hillsides of the TÃ¢mega River. The excellent exposure of the vines at this estate, located in the Basto sub region, along with rigorous selection in the vineyards and careful winemaking processes gives rise to wines of world-renowned quality.
Casa do Valle is the name of the manor house of the estate, which produces the Vinho Verde of the same name. Owned by the Sousa Botelho family, winemaking here dates back to the 18th century and features a mix of the ancient enforcado (tree-trained vines) and ramada (trellis) training systems for the red grapes and the modern single-wire training system for the white grapes.
The main noble grape varieties used for the white wines are the Alvarinho, Arinto, Azal and Loureiro. For red and rosÃ© wines the grape varieties are Vinhao, the predominant red-grape variety of the Vinho Verde Region, Rabo de Ovelha, and Touriga Nacional.
With a total area of 170 ha, of which 55 hectares are under vines, Casa do Valle is one of the largest production Quintas in the Vinho Verde Region, using exclusively grapes produced at the estate." - Importer
