Crisp green apples and pears, slight pineapple - really nice with our lunch of octopus salad and grilled fish

Vino Verde but nothing like the cheap stuff. This is Golden with tropical fruit flavors and med weight and clean acidity. A wine in perfect balance.

Свежий нос с преобладанием зрелых цитрусовых. Лимонный мармелад, дюшес, недозрелый банан, ананас. Достаточно лёгкое, но сконцентрированное тело, высокая кислотность. Цитрусовая основа во вкусе. Горькие цитрусовые корки (лимон, апельсин), ярко выраженная солоноватость в послевкусии. Легко и звонко. 16/20

An excellent vinho verde (although the restaurant has it listed as an albarino), thie wine has a terrific floral nose, medium bodied, and a very balanced finish. Probably could have been cooled a few more degrees to bring out the acidity a bit more, but still a very enjoyable wine.

Honigmelone, grüner Apfel, weisser Pfirsich und etwas Stachelbeere in der Nase. Weiche Frucht, leichte Säure und feine Mineralität und leichter Schmelz dabei sehr trocken.
