Álvaro Castro 2010

15.5 / 20
Producer: Álvaro de Castro
Region: Dão
Country: Portugal

An interesting white from the Dão from one of the best producers in the region, it shows a slightly green tinge and a nicely balanced bouquet where citrus notes mingle with white fruits and a strong mineral background that gives it a good deal of freshness.

Very fresh in the palate, citrus notes giving it a good deal of acidity and dryness in a delicate, soft body where the white fruit notes also appear. A good deal of mineral feel - lots of limestone - keeps it interesting up to the fresh, elegant and delicate ending.
