Taste profile from the winemaker: "A smooth and fresh wine with delicate and lovely fruity flavors. Slightly spritzy, it is well balanced and very refreshing."

ABC Wines review: A pale greenish gold in color, this non-vintage white wine blend is very lightly fragrant with aromas of tropical fruit. On the palate there is a slight effervesence typical of these "green wines". The fruit flavors are muted by a rather strong mineral taste that is more refreshing than not. The finish is briefly acidic. A fine sipping wine or one to take along on a picnic lunch. Our score: On the high side of Average.

Winery website: Aveleda (in Portuguese and English). There is no mention of this wine on the winery's website. Only an image of the wine's label could be found.
