Tasting Notes

Complex, full in the mouth, fresh and tasty. In the tasting is intense, persistent and refreshing. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "Good aroma, the focus goes to the citrus notes here in association with light white flower notes, more evident the Chardonnay than the Arinto. Good volume in the mouth, fine and very lively acidity, here especially avenge the citric notes, have a refined white, with a highly convenient price, compared to the quality. To fish dishes in a gentle cooking."
