Another French variety and one that is not so common in Portugal. Often associated with making sweet wines, here we wanted to create a dry white style with low alcohol and high natural acidity.
A small portion of this wine (15%) was aged in 500L new French oak barrels for 5 months to add texture and definition.
Bone dry with citrus- lemon and lime fruits as well as lemon grass green apple and a fine mineral finish.
As a young wine this pairs really well with simply grilled or fried seafood. Fully mature it is a perfect match for slow roast pork or poultry such as pheasant.
Will drink well on release but also has the potential to develop and age well for up 10 years or more.
