24/07/2017 – Quinta da Alorna Branco 2016

(2017) What a lovely white wine this is, crisp with only 12.5% alcohol, it's a blend of the local Arinto and Fernão Pires with Sauvignon Blanc and Marsanne, an unsual mix that brings bright, herbaceous and waxy tones as well as copious zingy fruit. Grapefruit and peach on the palate, shimmering between tropicality and something much more tersely delineated, a long, balanced finish with excellent acidity completes and impressive picture.
