Palpite 'Hunch', Alentejo, Portugal


Hayley Steward

 

VERY LIMITED PARCEL 

58% Arinto - 24% Verdelho - 18% Antao Vaz (12 months in French Oak on lees)

'Palpite' means intuition (or hunch) as this wine is made each year with different grape percentages and a style based on what feels right. Rich but refined with seamless hints of buttered toast. The fruit is rich melon/peach with butterscotch and tropical notes intermingled. In balance though. Very much so. Hedonistic and moreish with a texture and creaminess to savor. This could easily be Premier Cru Meursault at twice the price. 

BUY!
