The largest expanses of Jose Maria da Fonseca vines are found in Setubal. each utilising appropriate growing techniques to maximise qualitative potential according to individual ecological conditions.
Concord grape jelly and jolly rancher aromas with just a touch of citrus spice. Palate is light, light bodied, slightly oily with melon, peach and kiwi. Refreshing.
Ripe fruit, in a good way, with plum, apple, blackberries, and apricots. The mouth is noticeably acidic, and very mildly tannic. Overall it's pretty well balanced, and the smokey oak flavors provide a nice finish.
Minerally, green apple, notable acids with minimal aromas.
Sweet light melons on the nose. Tart and sweet up front but with a light body that's a bit demure. A light dusting of smarties on the finish. Nice.
More of that unique metallic dusty dark fruit nose I'm learning is the calling card of Touriga Nacional. Mixed perfectly with the syrah, resulting in a spice and blood bath, although pleasant. There's some potpourri and zin-like chalky sweetness on the finish. I'm digging this.
Very pale in color. Very light and dry. Slight fizz. Great for a hot day outside.
I love low alcohol wines in the summer. Dry with some fizz...very nice.
