Winemaker's Notes

Peza do Rei Blanco is intensely aromatic, featuring the herbal/mineral highlights of Godello with a blast of tropicality from the Albarino, the Treixadura serving to unify the whole wine.

Blend: 70% Godello, 20% Treixadura, 10% Albarino.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright straw. Aromas and flavors of green apple, lemon and honeysuckle, with a hint of quinine. Refreshingly bitter and precise, with very good finishing energy and a touch of candied lemon."
