Plump and fruit-driven style that shows enticing scents of yellow apple and peach, with a weighty, round wash of spiced peach, beeswax and cinnammon. Gentle, warm personality - a wine that hugs!

Try with Portuguese pork and clams, or any meaty fish.

In classic Douro style, Quinta do Judeu's white Corgo da Régua is a blend of a number of native and complementary grapes - Rabigata, Malvasia Fina, Sercial, Gouveio and Viosinho. Winemaker Emídio Bacelar has aged his wine just briefly (two months) in neutral steel, to emphasize the terroir's natural warmth, fruit and richness.

The ruggedly-handsome Douro region in northern Portugal is famous for its fortified, sweet wine, Port, but production here is actually evenly split between Port and table/normal wines. The terraced, steep slopes that characterise the appellation are composed of hard schist and granite, a terroir that's (very) tough to farm, but is ideal for the production of premium wine. White wine of any kind is rare in the Douro!
