This is a white wine most of our local wine lover would appreciate. It is a cuvee of 3 varietials: they are the 15/ Antao Vaz, 16/ Arinto and 17/ Chardonnay according to our list, and the first 2 are native. A 5% of Chardonnay give this wine as a touching but already made a big different.
Tropical notes and a hint of smoke in the nose suggested by the birth place of barrels where these wines fermented and aged. The wines were crafted to a body that offering sensations of dry, smooth, silky and creaminess. Like meditation that draw once mind out of the body; travelling into the universe. On the other hand, the scents of tropical fruit and vanilla in the mouth are so real and in a good harmony with the oak, fresh ensemble potentiality by the acidity stressing its youth.
Eyes catching Gold & White colour label, plus nice bottle shape, Good Chardonnay wine that I truly recommend. Beside this 2010 vintage we have limited quantities in other two vintages 2012 and 2014
