Pale Lemon in colour with a slight brassy edge. Citrus aromas with a little smelly reductive note. On the palate succulent pear notes mellow and creamy with M- acid. Fresh and very gluggable. Made from 3 native white Portuguese varieties I’ve never heard of. You would need to be an MW or an MS and you might be aware of these.

Another Southern European textural delicious white wine - this one from the Douro in Portugal from 3 grape varieties most of us would not have heard of. Fresh tropical fruit aromas with a touch of vanilla. Very very easy to drink - a bottle like this would disappear quickly at a party.

Brought this back from a recent trip to Portugal. Only 14 euros. Fresh mineral and white fruit components. Well balanced w/o being overly acidic or flabby. Delightful wine as an aperitif yet enough structure to stand up to salads and fish. Wish I could find it here in the states

Decent wine. Nice acidity to complement fatty foods.

Red blend. Nice tannins. Great with beans. Nice earthiness. Herbaceous. Had with lupini beans and it was amazing. Douro bake character. Great with food.
