2016 Esmeralda Fernao Pires

SKU: UWPWES-16

  Lisbon, Portugal

Pale gold in color, the nose springs to life with tangerine, cut hay, and summer rain. The palate has a vibrant core of lemon zest and melon together with a bracing streak of minerality that brings freshness and complexity to the wine’s core of flavors. The wine retains its crisp, refreshing personality through the finish with grated citrus and melon flavors and bright acid. Best enjoyed in its youth, the wine pairs particularly well with light salads or fresh seafood dishes.
