Quinta Santa Eufemia, Fine White Port

Description
Golden yellow colour. Intense aromas coming from the Moscatel Galega Branco grape, one of the oldest known grape varieties still in existence. The nose offers intense but fresh aromas of citrus fruit, lychee and green asparagus. This intense freshness is also reflected in the taste experience, with a balanced minerality and a hint of tropical fruit.
