THIS IS AMAZING, TRUST US
50% Antão Vaz, 25% Verdehlo, 25% Viognier
"The 2014 Rubrica is a blend of Antão Vaz (35%), Gouveio (35%) and Viognier (30%). About 30% of the blend fermented in new French oak barrels and was aged there for six months; the rest was in stainless-steel tanks on the lees. Demonstrating grip and tension on the finish, this is a lively Branco that dances on the tongue. It isn't big or particularly deep, but is focused and tasty with surprising persistence. It should hold reasonably well for a few years, too, but don't hesitate to dive in." (WA)
"This is an impressive wine. It's so balanced between opulent ripe fruit and a tight texture. Wood aging complements the rich apricot and crisp apple flavors, adding spice and a touch of pepper. The more juicy nature of the wine comes through as it opens up; however, it does need to age more. so wait until 2017." (WE)
