17,5 pts Revista de Vinhos - Bright, straw colour. Expressive. Floral with heady notes of tropical fruit and good intensity. Undertones of the region’s granitic minerality promise a complex wine. Dry, with nicely-balanced acidity and minerality typical of the region. Despite being fresh and refreshing, this wine has notes of ripe stone fruits and displays a certain creaminess against the mineral backdrop. Long, elegant finish. A wine with abundant personality.
