A young white wine with a bright pale yellow/green hue. Virgin
must is fermented at a controlled temperature, resulting in a fruity and aromatic
wine with a powerful suggestion of tropical fruit (pineapple, banana, pear) and
Chinese fruit litchis. Lingering hints of scrubland herbs and white rose. Juicy in
mouth, smooth, fresh and well balanced acidity. Enjoy with a wide variety of
seafood (especially soft fishes), oysters and pasta.
Varietals: Garnatxa 70%, Sauvignon Blanc 20%, Viognier 5% and Macabeo 5%.
"The 2008 Portal White is composed of 70% Garnacha Blanco, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, and the balance Macabeu and Viognier fermented and aged in stainless steel. It delivers a complex nose of mineral, dried herbs, fresh apples, and gooseberry. This is followed by a vibrant, intense, spicy wine with superb balance and length. It defines the meaning of over-delivering."
