Warm, rich wine with tropical flavors of mango, peach and with a ripe feel. It has weight, although the fruit does hint at crispness. There is a toast and nuts character that broadens out the interest.
A firm, tannic wine that reveals the cool ocean climate of Lisboa. This wine is structured and spicy from wood aging, with underlying juicy, well-blended flavors of plum and blackberry.
For an Alvarinho this is surprisingly herbaceous, bearing a green cut-grass aroma and lemon and pink grapefruit flavors. As the wine fills out over the next year, it will probably show more of the grape’s creamed apple and pear flavors.
An opulent, ripe wine, with smoky, tobacco aromas, black and red fruits, and tannins cushioned by the richness. The contrast here is the acidity that keeps the wine buoyant and fresh. It’s ready to drink.
