Macanita - Branco 2021
Sale Price: $25.99
On the nose, fresh floral aromas comingle with ripe yellow and green orchard fruit and a touch of slate. On the palate, bright and juicy, with mouthfilling concentration and refreshing acidity. A core of green and gold apple, pear and white pepper are wrapped with pleasant floral and mineral flavors on the long finish.
Wine Advocate: 90 Points
"The 2021 Branco is a field blend, roughly a 70/20 blend of Viosinho and Códega do Larinho plus 10% Gouveio, unoaked, very dry and coming in at 12.7% alcohol. The winery features some difficult whites, like the As Olgas, but this is the winery's version of a classic fresh white, bright, a bit fruit forward and with perfect balance. It has enough concentration to go with the beautiful supporting acidity. The fruit is tasty too, but this is acid driven. I am not sure how long it will last, but if only five or six years, that's not a flaw, just something this isn't really intended for. It will still hold a reasonable time, perhaps longer than indicated."
