'Number Two Branco' is a field blend from vineyards over 90 years old planted with Rabigato, Codega, Donzelinho Branco, Boal and Côdega do Larinho and aged for 10 months in used French barriques.
"Deliciously tangy and textural. The 90-year-old plus, field blend vineyards bring intensity and layer. Fleshy apricot, with soft, nutty, creamy oak. Savoury (touch cheesy) lees and a lick of raw honeycomb flesh out a backbone of grapefruit acidity – the driver. Long and flavoursome, with judicious flinty, smoky reduction and a saline-edged finish, it's aged in used French oak barriques. Super smart wine; super smart buy. Drink to 2025. 94 points."
