TASTING NOTES

Two of the most emblematic grape varieties of the Vinho Verde Region produce this citric wine with a fresh aroma that reveal lime and tropical fruits. Its freshness and minerality, associated to a relatively low acidity, make this wine one of the most refreshing and adaptive to the summer gastronomy.
