Roupeiro, Antão Vaz and Verdelho
A fusion wine; blending Portuguese varietals to produce a delicious white that is aromatic, fresh and packed with floral and fruit aromas, so attractive we just had to call this SEXY!
Pale lemon color with aromas of tropical fruit, fresh peach. Medium bodied, fine textural presence in the mouth, good balance between fruit and refreshing acidity.
Well matched with grilled fish or simple dishes of pasta aldente that are enhanced by a wine that has considerable fruit presence and freshness.
Clay-calcareous soils. Continetal/ Mediterranean climate. Hot and dry with cold nights.
