Visually it is straw yellow or light gold.
The aroma reveals restraint and complexity at first. It shows ripe fruit, orange jam, marmalade, and pear. Time in the glass brings earthy and spicy notes (Cardamom, Clove).
The mouth is rich, textured and unctuous. A vibrant acidity and a taste of clay bring balance and fantastic life. It has a sublime balance between the tension of acidity and ripeness of the fruit. It ends long and with great complexity.
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.
