Beautifully fresh, compact, energetic. Salinity, bee wax, nuttiness.

Drinking 2003, probably the hardest white to find in Portugal. Similar to Lopez de Heredia, this white will age well over the next 3-4 decades.

Cross an aged white Rioja with an aged white Bordeaux and you might get this. Wholly original.

2002 Bucaco Reserva complex, powerful and saline, with braised fennel notes,
such a cool glass of wine Like a Portuguese lopez de herredia

The wine is lifting with complexity, spicy notes, citrus focus and elegant subtle oak notes bringing light vanilla 👏😗
Wines produced from the land and Palace estate of Portugal’s last King.
The whole process of making the wine from the beginning to the finished product is just as it was from the first vintage. The grapes are from private vineyards planted close to the hotel, and complete the final touches to what lies on your table are hand-blown bottles with an old-fashioned wax seal.

Oddly enough great with a leg of lamb. Well worth the price
