Unusual for Vinho Verde, this wine was aged in wood for nine months, resulting in a rich, full-bodied character. It's ripe, full of yellow fruits and crisp pear flavors, shot through with lemon acidity. What it potentially lacks in freshness it makes up for in intensity and depth of flavor. Drink from 2016.
