Ribeiro Santo Escolha 2007

15.5 / 20
Producer: Carlos Lucas
Region: Dão
Country: Portugal

This white Dão shows an elegant, balanced bouquet where apples mingle with some spices in a very marked mineral background - sometimes approaching some Rieslings with an almost rubbery scent.

Very balanced in the palate as well, with a decent body and a mineral, dry approach that maybe lacks a slightly stronger fruit influence - it feels a bit unidimensional as it is.

Good, lemony ending, cleaning the palate and leaving a pleasant dry feel that lasts for quite some time.
