Basília Colheita 2011

15.5 / 20
Producer: Quinta da Basília
Region: Douro
Country: Portugal

A very fresh white from the Douro, this has a very tropical bouquet, with lots of passion fruits, but it also shows a greener, more acid, citrus side to it.

Fresh and soft in the palate, starting in a sweeter tropical note but changing halfway to a drier, more acid approach, reminding me of grapefruits. Very refreshing, finishes dry and showing a very good length in a citrus dominated finish.
