Product Description:

Private Selection White was created in 2001 with a desire to challenge the classic profile of great Alentejo white wines. To achieve this, we decided to base the wine on the underated Semillon variety and the use of new French oak barrels for fermentation and maturation. With growing the vineyard maturity and a careful selection of barrel suppliers the solid, rich and complex style of this wine has been reinforced over the years. Balanced and complex, with notes of grapefruit and fresh apricots, discrete toasty notes nicely integrated, roasted almonds and white pepper. Richly textured and elegant, toasty oak adding to a well-structured palate; long, deep and persistent finish
