Quote – “This is a smooth creamy blend of Viosinho, Alvarinho and Chardonnay. It is delicately poised, just hinting at vanilla while really emphasizing the crisp, clean and refreshing fruits. Acidity and a final orange zest flavour give it a refreshing aftertaste” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
