Folias de Baco Uivo Moscatel Galego Douro

Folias de Baco Uivo Moscatel Galego Douro

€21.00
Smells like a bed of psychedelic spring flowers and a bowl of freshly cut tropical fruits. Tastes like lychee, pineapple and mango. Slightly salty with a light, crisp body, and a touch of residual sugar that only enhances the fruit. A charming, bewitching wine to drink, cold, on the stoop.

Description

Tiago Sampaio is an innovative young winemaker, a project started in 2007 after years of agricultural studies in Portugal and Oregon. Specifically located in the Alto Douro, in the sub-region of Cima-Corgo – where the land is rough, tough and challenging – you will find his vines clinging to the slopes of schist and granite at an altitude between 500-700m. This aromatic stunner is made entirely of Moscatel Galego Branco, the Portuguese name for muscat a petits grains, the most elegant member of the muscat family. A glass of this wine is like a walk through the Arboretum in late spring. Smells like a bed of psychedelic spring flowers and a bowl of freshly cut tropical fruits. Tastes like lychee, pineapple and mango. Slightly salty with a light, crisp body, and a touch of residual sugar that only enhances the fruit. A charming, bewitching wine to drink, cold, on the stoop.
