A tangy textured wine that is impressively fresh for such a hot region as Alentejo. It has a crisp texture that is balanced by a touch of vanilla as well as freshened with citrus and green apple flavors. It is fresh and very drinkable at this young stage. Wait a year until 2017 and it will be even better.
