Tasting Notes

Rui Reguina started off his winemaking journey as a trainee in Champagne. This field blend of 8 different varieties from 2 separate plots consists of vines around 90 years of age. The wine is fermented and aged for 12 months in cement, and sees a further 12 months aging in bottle. This full-bodied dry white has aromas of spice and stone fruits, and is complex and rich. Pair with Portuguese stuffed crab.
