James Suckling

Aromas of lemon skin and dried apples plus hints of flowers and stones. Medium body, lovely freshness and density. Long and flavourful. Real Vinho Verde.

Deeply aromatic – even a suggestion of oak though the technical sheet says not – spiced with both pear and orange aromas. Intensely fragrant. Smells creamy too, thanks to the lees. There’s a lovely light tannic grip on the palate that balances the aromatic fruit perfectly, making this a wine that would be great on its own or at the table. Fresh as well as deep. Savoury and pear-fruited. Long and satisfying. Very good indeed. Has a great combination of power and freshness, expressing both the region and the variety. Delicious.

Bursts with tropical fruit – really juicy but concentrated pineapple with a touch of honey/syrup and lipsmacking greengage for balance. It maintained full throttle fruit and line on day two when it was too moreish not to disappear down the hatch!
