This wine is a lot of Bical (50%) on chalky-clay soil, Cerceal (25%) and Sercialinho (25%) on sandy soil. Fermented and matured in stainless steels vats.
Bical, Cerceal, Sercialinho
Colour pale-straw. A nose of orange peels and a lozenge of some hybrid tropical fruit left, something between sapodilla, feijoa and cantaloupe. It has a really plush viscosity, but over a line of very clean, persistent acidity. By the time it finally slides off the tongue, much of the orange has turned to tangelo and faded. Its a highly satisfying adventure thats never the slightest bit scary.
