The Casal Branco estate is located on the left bank of the Tagus River in the Almeirim-Portugal, and has been owned by the same family for more than two centuries. It has an area of 660 ha of which 140 are under vines.
Very lemony, great freshness, large body, giving a lot of pleasure on a grilled white fish.
It definitely has the potencial to gain the mineral notes the Fernão Pires variety usually gives with a few more years in bottle.
