The Morgado branco is 50% Encruzado, 50% Malvazia-Fina and is an absolute delight. I have a real 'thing' for the still wines of Portugal and particularly the whites. There is a nice tropical element on both the palate and nose reminiscent of Chardonnay or Aussie Vermentino with its rich citrus, pithy lemon and apricot/nectarines. There is a nice hazelnut edging to the fruit and the palate has a lovely waxy, textural element to it. Plenty of acid to keep this zippy and fresh but decidedly in the middle weight category as far as body is concerned without ever losing it fresh and breezy edge. Cracking summer wines and pretty flexible when it comes to pairing with food. MYLES, PWS
