From the winery:

Coche is without question our most exclusive white wine, but it is also a wine which aims to reach beyond the expression of its vineyards, region and provenance. The old vines and high altitude are the fundamental factors responsible for the success of this wine. Year after year the great challenge lies in achieving a balance between its body and acidity in order to create a fresh wine with a tremendous ageing potential. The 2015 Coche stems from vineyards with over 80-year-old vines growing in mica schist soils at an altitude of around 600m above sea level, primarily situated on the right side of the Douro River.


Coche shows an intense and profound minerality. Its aromatic profile is deeply complex, with beautiful toasty notes from the barrels as well as subtle hints of herbs which complement the soft floral and citrusy aromas of the wine perfectly. 2015 is a vintage with more structure and acidity than 2014. Along with its fine and delicate character, the palate has a lot of presence, offering flavours of white fruit and spices. It offers plenty of body without seeming heavy, and shows superb concentration, with judicious use of oak. The finish is wonderfully complex, elegant and slightly salty. A wine that will be best enjoyed out of a Burgundy glass.
