Quinta de Cabriz White Blend Dão Colheita Seleccionada 2007

Member Review by tommyvino:

A blend of 20% Malvasia-Fina, 40% Encruzado, 20% Cerceal, and 20% Bical fermented in stainless steel tanks and older French oak barrels with aging on the lees. A powerfully aromatic nose of ripe tropical fruits like tangerine, small sweet ripe bananas, papayas, guava, and also "Juicy Fruit" bubblegum. The flavorful palate is just a touch more reserved than the nose with white peach, nectarine, and a rich creamy effect probably due to the lees aging. Dry, full bodied, bright acidity in perfect balance with the fruit, and a long juicy finish. A great pairing with quince jam and Portugal's most famous cheese Serra da Estrela from the region Dão. 4.5/5
