The wine comes from vineyards planted close to the Atlantic Ocean, south of Lisbon. That gives cool character to this attractive blend of Alvarinho, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc. It has green fruits over a perfumed character that is touched by a herbal edge. The finely wrought wine is ready to drink.
