This wine is produced from traditional white wine varieties - Viosinho, Gouveio and Rabigato. This white is highly aromatic and complex and presents an excellent crunchy acidity. It shows a respectful equilibrium between the new French oak barrel toast where it partially fermented and aged for 8 months, a good integration of the primary and tropical aromas, and a good and delicate structure with a persistent finish.


Francisco Montenegro: "A light citrus yellow and green colour. The nose shows a fine balance between ripe, tropical fruit and a light touch of toasted wood. A fine and delicate aroma shows notes of pepper, wild flowers, with a hint of mineral also showing through. The full palate is supported by a well balanced acidity, with citric and floral flavours giving way to a light touch of toasty oak in the long finish."

Arnaud Steve  Vinostar - from 151 reviews    Portugal
**** Very good 
Some tropical fruit and a hint of vanilla in the nose, very good body with great balance, light creamy texture but with good freshness. Very nice and balanced white wine from the Douro, maybe more suited for the winter, that will be ideal with a fish with white flesh (Grouper, Sea Bass) cooked in the oven.
Tasting date : 01 Mar 2010
Maturity : Mature
Meaning on the maturity : Ready to drink now, but good surprises might happen if you leave it for 3 more years in the cellar
