Roupeiro (also known as Síria and Côdega do Larinho)
Grape Colour: White
Grape Region: Alentejano, Beiras, Douro and Terras do Sado
DOC: Alentejo, Bairrada, Douro
This is a very productive variety with small bunches of berries which are resistant to powdery mildew but sensitive to rot. The wines made from these grapes are delicate, fresh and elegant and yields are high. It has an exuberant primary aroma of citrus fruits with overtones of peach melon and forest flowers. In the cooler and higher grounds of Bairrada and Dão, it benefits from further freshness and acidity.
