Quinta do Monte d'Oiro Lybra White 2015

This beautiful wine blends Apricot and fresh steel into a bright fresh package.  Its fruity and touched with light vanilla toast and a bit of herbs.  Crisp clean acidity cleans the palate and leaves you wanting more. 

Tasting Notes

Very aromatic with dried flowers notes of tropical fruit and ripe citrus.  The wine has good mouth feel and an elegant finish.

Food Pairing

summer dishes, salads, light fish dishes and white meats
