Dom Rafael White Herdade Do Mouchao Alentejo 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Portuguese white wine does not usually achieve Parnassian heights of<br/>excellence, and has often, in truth, been rather clumsy and oxidised. At<br/>Mouchao there has been no sacrifice of local colour with the use of local grape<br/>varieties (Arinto and Antão Vaz) but a real effort has been made in the<br/>winery, with stainless steel and temperature control both employed to add a<br/>crispness and freshness . <br/> <br/>This is an expressive wine from a good vintage with plenty of weight and<br/>character, fresh certainly but with Iberian warmth and a citric dried fruit<br/>twist on the finish; all in all a perfect match for local dishes such as seared<br/>scallop or salt cod. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
