Wine Enthusiast über: Rubrica Branco

-- Wine Enthusiast: Wine Enthusiast zu 2020: A ripe, finely structured wood-aged wine where freshness contrasts with spice and a mineral edge. White fruits are shot through with citrus to add to the bright, spice and fruit aftertaste. Drink from later this year. 92/100


Parker über: Rubrica Branco

-- Parker: Parker zu 2020: The 2020 Branco Rubrica is a blend of 45% Antão Vaz, 35% Verdelho and 20% Viognier, aged for six months in an equal mixture of stainless steel and 25% new French oak. It comes in at 13.3% alcohol. Of the whites this issue, my favorite was the Branco Reserva Monte do Carrapatelo, but this is a very different style. There's still a base of Antão Vaz, but Verdelho takes over and adds a little personality while Viognier substitutes in to make a very different blend. This has a more delicate, more elegant feel, even if in fact it is no less concentrated. This also handles its modest oak treatment well while adding a touch of spice. Overall, I like them both a lot and they are quite reasonably priced. This, too, has some chance to improve and develop in the cellar. 89/100
