Portugal vineyards are brilliant. Having been to the duoro area I really got a taste for white port. When I looked for white port in the U.K. It was difficult to find so I thought I'd give Portugal vineyards a go. It was easy to place an order online and the ability to track its progress is excellent. All my orders have arrived in less than a week .... I think the last one was 4 days ....the order was well packed .....what more can I say ....great service !

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.
