Spring is here - time for fresh wines

It seems almost as spring arrived to CPH today, and only a few patches of old snow still lie resitantly scattered in the garden. Up on the balcony, it got 25 degrees, t-shirt climate and time for a fresh wine to go with blue shells (starter) and an grilled sea bass.

Quinta do Crasto 08 Branco

A Douro white on inox. Grapes are gouveio, Roupeiro, Cercial and Rabigato. All from wines 20 years+.

Clear with a olive green tone. Fresh bouquet of citric fruits and green apples. Mineralistic with a good acidity which tickles the toungue, mid palate of green apples followed by a dry fisnih. Uncomplicated, Portugisisk vinhandel 89dkk, 88P
