TASTING NOTE: Quadrus Vineyard sits on a terraced hillside hewn of schist, set above the Douro River at an altitude of 650 metres above sea level. This wine blends local and somewhat esoteric white wine grapes, including aromatic C˘dega de Larinho, vivacious Rabigato and robust Viosinho, to create a sleek, crisp evocation of flower blossoms, lemon, apple, peach and honey. Savour with seafood salad or smoked trout. (Vintages panel, Nov. 2018) Price $ 19.95
