Monte da Peceguina 2007 Proprietary White Blend Portugal

PORTUGAL - A powerful, expressive white blend, the Malhadinha Nova 2007 Monte da Peceguina is a lively, fresh wine of Portugal’s Alentejo region, which is known for producing white wines with intense, fruity, original aromas. Made by Winemaker of the Year Luis Duarte, this white blend exhibits tantalizing aromas of fresh apricots, figs, melon, pineapple and citrus with slight floral notes. On the palate, the 2007 Monte da Peceguina has honey fruit flavors with subtle spice notes from the three months of aging in mature oak. Medium to full bodied with good acidity, this wine has great minerality and a sense of elegance that maintain through the long finish. [+]
