Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An excellent example of this style. Crisp and refreshing with bright fruit flavours of citrus, white tree fruit and mineral elements that linger on the finish. Excellent choice with Cod Stew in Tomato-Lime Broth.
Tasted Jan. 2018
Delaforce (2015) is produced by winemaker, Jorge Moreira and made with 10% Alvarinho wine grapes from the Douro wine region. The grapes were crushed in a
pneumatic press and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, were it rested for six months prior to bottling. This wine is crisp, clean and fresh. - Community Wine Reviews
