Fine example of modern Portuguese wine at its very best. Wild, exotic fruit flavours and sleek, polished winemaking.

Press review:

“A blend of five varieties. Lovely freshness: bright with nice definition and texture to the lively cherry and berry fruits. An elegant style with some structure to the pure fruit. 94/100” – www.wineanorak.com
