The review of this blend:
“A touch of lime leads this off. Then, it resolves into a bright and lively wine whose acidity lifts the fruit beautifully. It’s fresh and a little piquant, elegant and precise. There is tension. on the finish as this demonstrates some grip and displays a little power. Overall, this has a somewhat unusual demeanor for a Grande Reserva, relying on restraint and. freshness. instead of wood and depth. It has a more classic “fresh wine” feel, and that’s a nice thing here. It will be interesting to see how this ages and evolves. It should hold nicely for the rest of the decade, at least. Let’s start. there and take it in stages thereafter, but I’d expect it to do even better. “
For Winemaker José Reverendo Conceição, this is a highlight already deserved by National and International critics. After successive awards for red wines, the white wines from Quinta Vale d’Aldeia are entering this new era.
