Weekly Wine – JP Azeitao

15 Oct

SONY DSCBacalhoa JP Azeitao Branco
Year: N/A
Portugal
750ml
13% ABV
$8.95 (LCBO) 

I did the red wine a while back, May 8, 2013, and this one, like the red, had a banner proclaiming it the #1 brand in Portugal.
I took this with a big grain of pink Tibetan salt back then as a #1 brand does not necessarily denote quality. But the red wine was fine so I approached this wine without any trepidations.

Consumed well chilled and with a meal, this wine is perfectly good. It has that musty undertone that some Portuguese wines have. It is an earthy kind of flavour. But it is well in the background and does not distract from ones enjoyment, of the meal or the wine. There are sulfites in the wine but I did not notice them. The wine is not harsh and rather mellow with a decent flavour and is quite refreshing on a hot humid day.
