Quinta da Murta Brut Nature 2013

Bucelas, Lisboa, Central and Southern Portugal, PortugalSalty and marine, this crisp brut nature wine sings of place: the briny Atlantic coast and calcareous-laced soils of Bucelas. Chalky throughout, with wild scrubby myrtle, lemon thistle, lemon pith, riffing sea salts and driving, shearing acidity, this biodynamically farmed, wild yeast fermented, traditional method fizz is 100 percent arinto The grape's herbal citrus notes amplified here. Two and a half years on the lees gives structure without heft; this is light, lean and riveting, vibrating on the finish, and drinking beautifully now with fresh oysters.Tasted: 16 January 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 26.99 BCLS Producer: Quinta da MurtaDistributors: Cru Terroir Wines + Spirits Ltd.
