Herdade da Comporta Chao Das Rolas Branco Peninsula de Setubal Portugal 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A blend of Arinto Vaz and Fernão-Pires And now for something completely different. This offers up aromas of quinine and medicine, with great big dried grass notes and sweetly oxidized aromas of fermenting apples and a touch of pine with a butcher’s wax topnote of volatility. In the mouth this tells a different story, fresh, edgy and bright with fine acids supporting clean, if slightly simple fruit but on the backend the aromas from the nose come into play adding in nuances of aged fruit and a touch of a hoppy floral character. The finish is long and precise, with much of the odd character dissipating, replaced by subtle sandy mineral notes and a fine edge of slightly creamy citrus fruit. A bit of an oddball of a wine but not without appeal. 85pts
