I think of this wine a one that fits into my "red wine drinkers white" category. It's color is very close to that of a chardonnay but it's character is nothing like that. I prefer Sauvignon Blanc for my whites, but the Spanish and Portuguese whites are bold and stand up well to foods. We're drinking the 2005.

Expect a crisp, clean, focused palate with beautiful aromatics of white peach, white flowers, citrus peel and more mineral. The palate is quite rich, expanding, viscus, yet fresh with vivid, needed acidity and beautiful balance. The fruit flavors are bright and racy yet ripe and generous, well rounded with excellent texture and length. It is delicious a day after it's first opened. Enjoy this wine with sauteed or fried fish.

A blend of Alvarinho and Trajadura, Auratus is a Portuguese white that goes beyond your traditional Vinho Verde. Very clean and fresh, this has notes of honey and ripe apples, with vivid acidity and mineral notes.

Some of the best and oldest Albario vineyards are actually in Portugal directly across the river from Spain. So when the young Gallego winemaker Marcial Dorado set out to make the finest Albario of all he crossed the river. Overlooking the town of Melgao he had discovered a 70-year-old Albario vineyard the likes of which he couldnt find in Spain. He purchased the vineyard naming it Quinta do Dorado. Marcial had carefully observed the practices at Rias Baixas wineries he admired and he adapted those lessons to his new estate.

Winemaker's Notes:

We love the Auratus for its crisp and clean palate with beautiful aromatics! Think Dorado – only less expensive. The fruit comes from a newly purchased estate in Seixas planted with old vine Trajadura and young Alvarinho. (Trajudura is a relatively obscure white grape used, in this case, to add body to the wine.)
