Qunita das Setencostas LabelWine Tasting Note: Casa Santos Quinta das Setencostas Branco, 2003, Alenquer, Portugal.
Available from Oddbins £5.49 (currently 2 for £10).
Setencostas White (meaning seven hillsides) is a marvellous mix of indigenous varieties (35% Fernao Pires, 30% Arinto, 15% Vital and 10% Rabo de Ovelha) with a splash of Chardonnay; the latter adding to the overall weight and balance. The wine is fresh, crisp and flavoursome - bursting with lime and herbs on the nose. The palate has plenty of complexity (orange pith and unripe apples) and ends with an individual mineral feel. It is a food wine really - shellfish, baked trout, salads - we had a delicious herby, chicken and sweetcorn risotto which went superbly. 13% alcohol.
Scribblings Rating - 92/100
