Trincadeira das Pratas

The white grape variety comes from Portugal. Synonyms are Allaren, Arinto Gordo, Boal Prior and Tamarez d'Alentejo. It should not be confused with the Tamarez (Boal Prior) or Trincadeira Preta varieties, despite morphological similarities or apparently indicative synonyms. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2015, it is probably a natural cross between Hebén x Alfrocheiro. However, a further DNA analysis by other biologists only confirmed the parentage of the Hebén variety. The variety was a crossing partner in the new breeding of Albana Devej. The early-ripening vine is susceptible to botrytis, but resistant to both types of mildew. It produces light white wines with aromas of fresh herbs, lemons and pears. The variety is grown in the Península de Setúbal and Ribatejo areas. In 2016, a vineyard area of 124 hectares was designated (Kym Anderson statistics).
