Pale straw in colour with golden hues. The bouquet shows an exuberant floral aroma, with evident mineral notes. The wood and the mineral aromas are in perfect harmony with the citrus and floral profile, great precision and good vibrant acidity on the palate, it transmits a genuine freshness and balance, in a finish that is long and complex.

These are certainly wines that will create a lot of buzz… A very exciting tasting of the first vintage of Vinhos Imperfeitos. After 8 years as the wing man of Dirk Niepoort, and making the iconic white wines like Redoma Reserva and Coche – Carlos Raposo being equally talented, serious and crazy, is now venturing out on his own. A very serious range with an emphasis on purity, precision, length and mouthfeel rather than intense aromatics or flamboyant fruitiness. Spiritually I would place these between Chablis and the Côte de Beaune, however with their own distinct personalities like the interregional blend from Dão and Vinho Verde.
