Some lovely Portuguese whites

IMG_8172

Some Portuguese whites, tasted with lunch on the Lisbon coast. All impressive, and not too expensive.

Soalheiro Vinho Verde 2014 Portugal
This is benchmark Alvarinho from one of the top producers in the region. Lively precise pear and grapefruit flavours, showing nice focus with some spiciness. Precise with a lemony finish. 91/100

Redoma Branco 2013 Douro, Portugal
This is so good. Nuts, fennel, spice and pear with subtle wax and toast. Generous and a bit spicy with lovely texture. 92/00

Três Bagos Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Douro, Portugal
This Douro Sauvignon is turning into a bit of a classic, although it is not a typical wine from the region. Very fresh, sweet grassy blackcurrant and citrus fruit dominates. Very attractive and bright, with pear and peach richness. 90/100

Quinta do Passadouro Branco 2014 Douro, Portugal
A really pure, focused Douro white with citrus and pear, fruit, as well as a bit of mineral character. Lovely. 91/100
