 Lithe, creamy and rich, with lively flavors of brioche, ripe pear, almond tart and pastry. Light buttery notes show midpalate, leading to a finish that is lush with honeysuckle and beeswax accents. (KM)  (12/2016)

K&L Notes

Based on a 100-hectare, granite site in what has to be one of the world's most underrated wine regions for stylish, food friendly wines, Portugal's Dao region, Casa Americo is producing top quality budget friendly wines. This white has 40% Malvasia, 30% Cerceal and 30% Encruzado, all of which combine to form the citric, mineral driven yet broadly textured and nicely rounded white - think Chablis, Iberian style!

Portugal

- 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.
