Nose of apricots, greengage with a hint of toasty vanilla. Ripe and full palate with refreshing acidity. Still needs time in bottle to open up.
leather. Long and weighty this is an incredibly satisfying wine.
- Voted the "Best White Wine In Portugal" - 2014
"The name means 'rooftop', because the vineyard is full of terracotta roof tile fragments, on the site of a Roman village. Very long periods on skins for Viognier, fermented in barrel long and natural yeast. Lots of spice and floral, peachy Viognier character, really comes through beautifully. "My take on Condrieu, which I can't afford to drink." With fabulous structure and tannin, lots of richness, lots of tang and vibrancy, with both juiciness, the barrel giving supporting vanilla touches, and a bracing long finish. Fab stuff. 93/100"

- Food match:
Lovely with slightly richer dishes such as roast pork or chicken. Anything with a creamy sauce will also work nicely.
