This wine has intense brightness to sustain the beautifully clear fruit. Acidity and a toasty edge show well. Drink from 2024. Organic.

The 2021 Reserva Branco is a roughly equal blend of Antão Vaz, Roupeiro and Arinto. It was aged for six months in a 75/25 mixture of stainless steel and new oak (mostly American). It comes in at 14.03% alcohol. Nicely focused, this is precise and tight, not fully open and showing its oak a bit. That said, the freshness cuts through the wood easily, and the fruit asserts itself easily as well. For the money, this is a no-brainer purchase, another fine value from a company that specializes in them.
