We`ve had an up and down summer and July hasn't been very nice. But we are not ready to give up on nice summer days yet, and welcome in August with some very nice drops of white wine from Portugal.
The Douro valley stretches from Spain and into Portugal as it follows the Douro river. It is famous for its wines both in Spain and Portugal, and in Portugal especially for the Port wines that are made here. But they also make some fine white wines and this week's wine is a fine and reasonably priced one from the producer Luis Seabra.

Nice smell of apples and pears. Got a bit of weight to it which is balanced nicely with good acidity. AIn the mouth it is long and flavorful with citrus and green apples the main flavours.
