Visually, it has straw yellow and light gold hues. The aroma reveals contention and complexity at first. It shows ripe fruit, orange compote, quince marmalade and pear. Time in the glass brings earthy and spicy notes (Cardamom, Cloves). The mouth is rich, textured, unctuous. A lively acidity, brings it a balance and fantastic life. It ends long and complex, pleasant and prolonged.
First of all, a contemplation wine, it can be tasted in good company, as a partner to a cured sheep cheese – like Nisa's for example, broken into small pieces, in the Amareleja style. A wine to accompany good conversations. It harmonizes well with oven fish dishes and stewed meats. It has structure, volume and acidity to hold up even with grilled meats. Looking at our origins, it will gladly accompany a traditional broth of Cod (Caldo de Bacalhau), or any other recipe prepared with cod.
