100% Touriga Nacional - a Blanc de Noir, though the warming copper tones you'll spot in the glass give a hint at this wines unusual style.
Complex aromatics with notes of fresh and preserved red fruits, spring blossoms, red apple, and much, much more. On the palate there's a fruity yet crisp freshness with a beautifully balanced acidity, with more white fruit character coming through. Great mouth-feel and a long persistent finish.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured. One of the great achievements of the 2017 vintage, a very fine wine that stands out by virtue of its freshness and vibrancy.
One of my favourite white discoveries of last year; crisp, fresh and elegant with classic varietal character and a mouthwatering finish. - Chris Connolly
