90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Branco was recently seen in Bairrada, but it is revisited this issue since this is the first stateside appearance, and it has had some time to calm down. A blend of 20% Bical and 80% Cercial, the Bical component only was aged for six months in used French oak (the Cercial in stainless steel). Tight, fresh and aromatic, this is better than ever now, crisp on the mouthwatering finish, focused and penetrating. Very aromatic as well, it is fresh and enticing at the moment. It should have the stuffing and acidity to age well."
"80% Sercial (tank), 20% Bical (barrel fermented).
Citrus – grapefruit and lemon – and fresh pears. Tight and dry and with a fine stony texture, giving just a slight and attractive grip. Wonderful freshness and intensity without weight. Long, too. It is lovely now but I am sure this will gain complexity in bottle. 16.5/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Produced from bical and cercial planted in sandy soils and clay-limestone, it shows the consistency and freshness character of the best whites of Bairrada. The grapes are harvested in the morning, are whole bunch pressed and vinified separately. Cercial ferments in stainless steel tanks in order to maintain its aromatic brightness, while the bical is fermented in used barrels to add complexity and unctuosity to the final blend. Both age on the fine lees for 6 months. The intensity of the citric notes stands out in the aroma, accompanied by a slight salinity note. The palate shows the acidity and the typical texture of bical, with a long and tense finish.
