(2023) Made from all local varieties led by Viosinho and Gouveio, with Arinto, Códega do Larinho and Rabigato making up another 20%. The blend was aged in barrels, 20% of which were new, for six months. A wine I've tasted in several previous vintages, but what a fine effort this is in 2021. The barrels add a layer of gentle oatmeal and toast, but this is really about ripe but clean and pure citrus and orchard fruits. This has weight and texture, a little nutty barrel weight beneath, but the dazzling freshness of the fruit and decisive acid line is most impressive. A Christmas banker for fish through to roast chicken or turkey. Watch the video for more information.
