Vale da Capucha, Fossil, Lisboa, Portugal 2012

From a 13ha organic vineyard close to the Atlantic, this uses local varieties Arinto, Gouveio and Fernão Pires. Named after the maritime fossils in the limestone soil, it has texture and honeyed complexity with floral and citrus tones. Unoaked, fresh and tangy with fine minerality. Great value.

Creamy white peach, hints of white asparagus – lovely mouthfeel – teased out by lemony acidity. Great value organic white with appeal for Mâcon lovers.
