Tasting Notes

Real Grande Reserva Branco Bruto 2010 from Montanha Estate in Bairrada region has a fine persistent beam and a great straw yellow colour.

On the nose it’s elegant and rich. Notes of apple and orange blossom. There are also notes of biscuit and a touch of bread.

On the palate Montanha Real Grande Reserva 2010 has a very good structure. It’s round and long. There is a very nice freshness that balances everything out.

Elegant, moreish wine!

Chardonnay

Green-skinned grape variety used in wine production

Chardonnay is a grape variety with a green skin that is used to make white wine. The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand. Growing Chardonnay is seen as a rite of passage for new and emerging wine regions, as well as an easy entry into the international wine market.
