Beyra Quartz Reserva White 2016
Very mineral and citrus, grapefruit, slightly smoky, vibrant acidity with a structure that promises good ageing in the bottle. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Síria and Fonte Cal native grape varieties, from vines planted in purely granite soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River's hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 725 metres above sea level. Excellent with shellfish, fatty fish and cured goat cheeses.
This ripe wine is all about apple and grapefruit fruitiness, with a cool tang balancing the richness. The aftertaste brings in spice and crisp, tight, mineral acidity. Drink from 2018.
