About. Nestled in the serene Douro Valley of Portugal, the 2019 Godin Branco DOC Douro emerges as a refined emblem of the region's winemaking heritage. This wine, a brainchild of Porto Réccua Vinhos, SA, embodies a company's innovative spirit and ambitious vision that prides itself on crafting unmissable products and brands. The Godin Branco's connection to its land and history is profound, drawing inspiration from the Norse deity Odin, reflecting a blend of myth and tradition.
The Douro Valley, a landscape carved by the Douro River and framed by rugged mountain ranges, provides a perfect terroir for vine cultivation. The region, known for its sheltered position upstream from Porto, is distinct from its neighboring Porto wine region. While Porto is celebrated for its Port wines, the Douro Valley, a mere three hours away, garners acclaim for its fine, unfortified red and white wines.
The Godin Branco shows the rich, shale soil of the Douro. Composed of noble grape varieties like Malvasia Fina, Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato, and Fernão Pires, this wine is a celebration of the valley's diverse viticultural offerings. The winemaking process, overseen by Maria Antónia Gomes, involves meticulous steps such as crushing with total stemming, light maceration, pneumatic pressing, and controlled temperature vinification. However, it notably skips the internship stage, ensuring the wine's purity and fresh character.
