Pale straw-golden in colour. The bouquet shows expressive aromas of honeysuckle with soft butterscotch notes. The seamless barrel integration is mirrored in the delicate touch of vanilla. The palate, brings fruit that is crisp and focused with succulent flavours of white plum and citrus tones in the background. Harmonious and charming on the finish.

Quinta da Fonte Souto is in the Portalegre sub region of the Alto Alentejo in southern Portugal. Close to the São Mamede range (1,025 metres), the property benefits from the area’s altitude with its cooler microclimate in sharp contrast to the Alentejo region’s typically hot and dry conditions. Yields are low due to the schist and granite soils, which are less fertile than those found in the flat and rolling terrain which characterizes the majority of the Alentejo. There are 207 hectares on the property, of which 43 are planted with vines. The property has a substantial chestnut grove, from which its name is derived — ‘Souto’ refers to a wooded area planted with chestnut trees.
