João Portugal Ramos, Vila Santa Reserva Branco 2015, Vinho Regional Alentejo, Portugal
Tasting Note: A fun, white blend from Portugal.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of ripe, yellow fruit including banana and lemon.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied white blend presents round, tart lemon-citrus fruit with some chalk on the finish.
Bottle Note: This wine is made from Arinto, Alvarinho and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties that are partly fermented in new French oak barrels. Showing slightly green tones, citric aromas, exotic fruits and elegant spicy notes. Complex flavor with a mineral freshness of great elegance.
