Deep brassy gold color. Nose has loads of yellow fruits and stony minerals (It’s a blend of 40% Antao Vaz, 30% Arinto, and 20% Alvariho grapes). Meadow flowers and a teensy bit of toastiness. In the mouth it’s ripe and deeply flavored, the fruit very low-toned. Tons of stony minerals. The texture is soft and broad. Acids are low-ish. Nice, lengthy finish. I don’t think this will age, but it’s really nice now. — 3 months ago

Strong nose of yellow apples, spices, minerals, lemons, earth, orange peel, herbs and overripe citrus fruits.

Dry on the palate with over ripened apples, citrus, cream, spices, light vegetables, light peaches, herbs, earth, limes and black pepper.
Nice finish with soft tannins and tangy limes.
This is Is a very interesting white blend from Portugal. Although crisp, it has a light buttery feel. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Better when not too cold, and after 20 minutes of airtime.
This is not my usual style, but I really enjoyed it.
Paired wonderfully with a Mediterranean dish of baked eggplant drizzled with Tahini.

Bursting with tropical flavors, lots of pineapple and guava, almost reminds me of POG juice. Balanced with a crisp acidity and very easy to drink. Amazing for the price, I immediately went back and grabbed 2 more bottles — 6 months ago
When In Portugal…. Drink Portuguese white blends, with wax caps. From the local mini mart… for 10 euros plus. A soft lion, all scrunched up Burgundy, strong Deep yellow & begging for food. Drinks more like a high end Bourgogne or better. From the mini mart….did I mention that? — a year ago

2020 vintage. A blend of 70% Roupeiro and 30% Antão Vaz, vinified together in amphora by winemakers António Maçanita and Sandra Sárria. Unlike stated by one comment here, this is not oxidative whatsoever. Pear, quince, flowers and a hint of fresh mint. Medium-bodied with juicy white fruit, tight acidity, fresh herbs and very good mineral length. Abv. 12,5%. — a year ago
