The 2020 Branco Tons is an unoaked blend of 30% Viosinho, 25% Rabigato, 20% Verdelho and 20% Arinto, plus a dollop of Moscatel Galego Branco for the rest (giving the wine some personality). It comes in very dry and at 12.6% alcohol. In its youth (bottled about seven weeks before it was tasted), this is super and another overachiever from a brand that has become a very good and consistent value. It's hard to lean up too far on the score here, given that I don't think it will age or develop much, but right now it certainly seems like a super deal in its youth. It is fresh, exuberant and alive. It has a reasonable degree of solidity in the mid-palate as well. It will be a perfect porch-sipper this summer. Drink it very young for best results, no matter how long it theoretically lasts.

Region: Douro

The undisputed jewel in Portugal's crown is the beautiful wine region of Douro, located along the banks of the river from where it gets its name. The region itself is renowned around the world for its range of wonderfully aromatic fortified wines, as well as a wide variety of still red and white wines made from native grape varietals. Wineries in the Douro region utilize a huge amount of different local grapes for their characterful wines, but generally the most popular are made from Tinta Roriz, a rich and flavorful red wine grape related to Spain's flagship Tempranillo. However, there are plenty of different red and white grape varietals used in the region, all benefiting from the excellent hot weather and mineral rich terroir which characterizes the Douro valleys.

Country: Portugal

Benefiting from both the hot, dry Iberian climate as well as brisk Atlantic winds, Portugal is a perfectly situated country for vineyard cultivation and wine production. With a wine making history which stretches back thousands of years, it comes as little surprise that wine plays an important role in the cultural identity and practices of the country. The Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks and the Romans all had a hand in forming Portugal as an important center for wine production, and over the millennia, this resulted in each region of this beautiful part of Europe producing its own distinctive wines easily identifiable and separate from neighboring Spain's. Today, the varied terroir and climate across Portugal allows a great range of wines to be made each year, from the fresh and dry Vinho Verde wines to the famous and widely drunk fortified Port wines, and many in between.
