Medium gold in colour. Aromas is bright and clean with ripened stone fruits (nectarine, apricot, peach), bosc pear, fresh yellow fruits (quince), yellow apple, mandarin, lime, lemon zest, touch of white flowers and orange blossom. Palate is fruity and crispy with lean mouthfeel and characters of yellow fruits, mix sweet herbs, cut grass and a touch of stone fruit core-like bitterness at the end. Lime peel, quince, fresh orange and a drizzle of floral note on the finish. This is a relatively more “matured” version of Vinho Verde DOC given its vintage (2018), it is at its peak drinking period where the expression of fruits are in a ripened style.
