Totally unique green apple pip and sea spray aromas. Grassy and mineral and salty and acidic in nice proportion with a hint of marzipan. Medium body and good concentration and a supple long finish. Not harshly acidic like the red collares I’ve tried, nor as floral as I’d expect from a Malvasia. Like a young savagnin grown on the beach. Would love to try this bottle in several years.

Neutral, vinho verde like nose with broad shoulders and high acid- reminds me of a topped up savagnin in this way. Great density. Needs time.

Minerality with a whiff of apple. 100% Malvasia hillside on the Atlantic coast. Pretty cool

Beautiful! As good as the best dry Rieslings. Rubber on the nose. Bright acid that hits mid-palate.

Going through a Portuguese wine phase. As good as white wines get. Complex, fruity and versatile. Had it with fluke, uni, octopus, salt cod and scallops. Beautiful wine label.
