Very soft, hardly any acid in this delicate Portuguese white wine. Soft white peach notes. Nice aperitif. A clean finish wraps up this package nicely.

The 2012 vintage of this Portuguese white wine is made from 100% Arinto grapes, which is the flagship varietal in this region. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve fruit freshness, and it was also aged in tanks before bottling in May 2013. The grapes for this wine grow on old vines that are about 30 years of age and result in more concentrated flavours and complexity. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
