86pointsWines & Winemakers 2016 Pegos Claros Branco Castelão (Península de Setúbal)

This is an unusual view of the red Castelão grape, here vinified as a white wine with no skin color at all. Some wood aging adds spice and roundness to what is a smooth, while toasty, wine. Its white fruit and acidity are joined by some tannins. So this wine needs a few more months. Drink from early 2018. Roger Voss
