Malvesia Fina/Viosinho/Rabigato/Moscatel Galego * 75cl * 13% ABV * Douro, Portugal
This wine comes from the Douro Valley in northern Portugal and is produced from grapes grown in higher altitude vineyards where cooler temperatures provide the ideal conditions for the even maturation of white grapes. The result is a zesty, aromatic wine with tropical fruit flavours and a refreshing crisp acidity. It's made from grapes sourced from the Symington family owned Quinta da Fonte Branca near Lamego and from vineyards in the Alijó and Favaios areas. It's intense pale straw in colour and reveals bright wildflower aromas as well as citrus and apple scents. The palate is lively with fresh tropical fruit flavours, which are enhanced and balanced by crisp acidity.
