Overview: A fresh and aromatic white wine made from a hand-harvested blend of Douro's native white grape varieties. The wine, Pomares, is named after the orchard which is next to the vineyard, as the wine has notes of citrus and orchard fruits.
Varietals: Viosinho, Gouveio, Rabigato
Tasting notes: The brilliant pale yellow color with green reflects speaks to the citrus freshness inside the glass! White blossoms, tart green apple, ripe white peach, lime and candied lemon peel on the nose. Crisp and complex layers of grapefruit, candied lemon peel on the mouth. The lingering flavor and quaffing acidity will have you asking for a refill (or two)!
Winemaking: This wine is aged on the lees for 4 months for a creamier texture; all stainless steel, no oak. This wine is not filtered, maintaining character and levity.
Enjoy with: Shellfish, grilled peaches, chevre cheese or salads
