Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

One of the most sophisticated white wines coming out of Portugal, this blend of native grapes is fermented and aged in French oak casks. The vines are older, planted in schist soils at altitudes ranging from 400-700 meters on the right bank of the Douro river. Fresh yet complex and fuller in body on the palate.

Any seafood would be complimentary, particularly if it's raw. But perhaps most ideal would be a plate of briny olives and sardines.
