(2011 Vintage) A harmonious wine in which the floral aromas of the Loureiro grape variety are merged to perfection with the tropical notes of the Alvarinho. The result is a complex, elegant wine with a long, persistent after-taste in the mouth.

    Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 08/09. Lean and focused as a young wine, this is packed with fruit and mineral flavors. Spend some time with the wine and you might find orange blossom, lemon and lime pith, peach skin and smoky minerality. The tartness will round out with a few months of bottle age. For any fruits de mer.
