A very fresh and mineral-driven selection grounded by fermentation and a brief layover in French Oak for 4 months. Fresh vegetal and citrus notes greet the nose, with faint orange and coriander. Very soft on the palate, with a gentle brininess and soft vanilla wrapping the tongue like a cashmere blanket. A crisp finish and faint echo of green apples linger like the last dance. One doesn’t first think white wine with chorizo, but damn if Nuno didn’t nail the pairing again.
