Malvasia Fina, Códega, Viosinho, Gouveio
It is rich yellow golden hue anticipates a very intense bouquet dominated by floral notes and by the flavours arising from its ageing in wood, the "noble oxidation" that adds to it notes of nuts, peanut butter and honey. With an increased richness and complexity, the wine reached a fine balance between acidity and sweetness, complemented by a long and elegant finish.
