Aromas of ripe orchard fruit are at the forefront of this blend, with notes of peach and green apple. Cerceal Branco contributes a citrusy brightness, with hints of fresh-squeezed lime juice and zest. As it warms a bit in the glass, there's faint floral traces of white blossom.


Flor d'Penalva is light-bodied and fresh, with flavours of peach, apricot, yellow apple, and nectarine. The acidity is subtle but balanced, adding energy and lift to the dry finish.


Seafood would be perfect with this bright, citrusy white - try with a simple Ceviche, tuna crudo, or your favourite takeout sushi.

Aromas and Flavours


Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.


From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.


Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.


Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?


You just received a bouquet from a secret admirer and the smell is intoxicating.

Portuguese wines are truly having a moment in the international spotlight, and we couldn't be more excited about the quality and diversity of the offerings we've been tasting. Our latest finds are the Flor d'Penalva blends from Adega de Penalva, located in Dão, Portugal's oldest wine region. Just south of the famous Douro Valley (the homeland of Port), Dão enjoys a temperate climate that allows for even ripening of a wide variety of grapes. Flor d'Penalva's white is a blend of Malvasia Fina and two rare indigenous grape varieties, Cerceal Branco and Borrado. Though the cooperative has grown considerably since its inception in 1960, Adega de Penalva remains focussed on creating benchmark expressions of the Dão, and this blend is a wonderful example. If your only exposure to Portuguese white wines is Vinho Verde, this will offer an intriguing peak at what else the country can produce. Enjoy at a well-chilled 8 C over the next 2-3 years.
