Ataíde Semedo Vio 2010

16.0 / 20
Producer: Ataíde Semedo
Region: Bairrada
Country: Portugal

Named Vio since Viognier is not an accepted grape type in the Bairrada wine region, this is a 100% Viognier coming from a renowned portuguese winemaker, credited until recently for one of the best reds from the Bairrada - Quinta da Dona.

Pale yellow in the glass, the nose is very expressive with lots of flowery notes, orange blossom, a nice spice background, everything seasoned with a fresher, citrus side reminiscent of limes.

Very interesting in the palate, showing a good structure and some complexity although it never loses a sense of freshness given by its acidity. Quite flowery in the palate as well, it shows itself as a very interesting, food-friendly wine with a really strong backbone. Finish is full and long, bringing out the more citrus, lime side.
