Quinta Do Casal Branco White 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Half barrel fermented then aged for six months in wood. Mineral and tropical on the nose with aromas of citrus fruits framed with a little almond cream. On entry this turns quite floral in the mouth in a very elegant, clear and precise style that shows great cut and almost salty minerality. Flavors of apple with clear lemon juice accents dominate the mid palate along with very subtle wood tones that lead to a finish which gains a bit of a spicy undertone. This feels young and I bet it improves over the short term but it’s already fabulous. 90pts

Very mineral, floral, and almost Gruner like on the nose with aromas of green fruits and even a hint of white pepper. A bit low on the palate though with plenty of acid and a nice deep chalky mineral vein embedded in fairly intense bitter apple and pineapple flavors. There’s nice length to the fine golden fruit flavors that show a faint persistent pithy note and a hint of raw nut and mandarin orange on the fairly long finish. 88pts
