2009 Quinta do Feital "Auratus" Minho

SKU #1059598

93 points Wines & Spirits: "The sister wine to Marcial Dorado's Alvarinho, this grows at a vineyard planted on a vein of schist. The vines are relatively young, but Dorado's meticulous farming coupled with the distinctive site make this compelling and beautiful. The color is golden, predicting the ripe nectarine and peach scents. And while the wine is superripe, it's also corseted by a tight band of acidity that keeps it fresh and brings up floral notes in the finish. Startlingly delicious a day after it's first opened, this is a wine to keep for a year or to decant now for oysters and other fruits de mer."

This outrageous blend of Alvarinho/Trajadura shows lovely oxidized manzanilla (although not mushroomy) character balanced with tough strong citrus and stone fruit. Really enjoy this, but it's not made for you Duckhorn Sauv Blanc fans. Weirdo, interesting, well priced. I'm in love!

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
