Palpite is a barrel fermented, reserve quality white wine produced from a selection of the best vineyard blocks every vintage. Palpite is a Portuguese word meaning a good hunch or intuition and is an acknowledgement the importance of these feelings in the craft of winemaking. The wine combines richness with freshness derived from the blend of native grape varieties and by fermenting
and skillful aging in small French barrels.
Winemaker’s Notes: Golden straw color, intense, complex nose with hints of spice, grapefruit and cream. The mouth-feel has fullness and texture from the barrels. Overall the wine presents a fine balance of intense richness and acidity that extends into a persistent finish. A gastronomic white that contrasts powerful elements of richness with freshness, spice and creaminess making it a highly versatile food wine that has the body and texture to enable it to combine equally well with baked fish in a rich sauce and possesses the naturally high acidity to makes it a good match for lighter fish and shellfish.
