Who said Portugal can’t make white wine that last as much as Burgundy. Impressive acidity that still holds after 20 years. Worth every drop

Amazing find! Pleasantly oxidized but still has fresh golden fruits and bright acidity. How do they do that?

Undervalued treasure from Portugal. Bright acidity still hanging on after 20 years. Drink now as it seems to be at the edge of its lifespan, but what a delightful wine for food.

Lemon zest, Beeswax & Honey, amber & roasted cumin. Tons of acidity, tons of life left in this youngster.
