Notes: The Florão White represents the most approachable wine style from the Fonte Souto estate, made with all the attention to detail & care of the other estate wines, but with a more youthful profile intended for drinking young. Its freshness, balance & structure clearly identify it as wine born of the unique Fonte Souto terroir.

Aromas of white fruits, with apricots & traces of tropical fruit. Very fresh on the palate, revealing fine acidity that highlights some minerality. Good volume on the palate with a sumptuous quality in perfect balance with the vitality provided by the precise acidity.

 

Producer Info: This is the Symington family’s first property outside the Douro region. Quinta da Fonte Souto is in the Portalegre subregion of the Alto Alentejo in southern Portugal. The 207-hectare Quinta da Fonte Souto was acquired by the Symington family in 2017 & is their first vineyard outside the Douro.

Lying on the slopes of the São Mamede Range at an altitude of 500 metres the property benefits from cooler & wetter conditions than the hot Alentejo plain. The Fonte Souto wines express the freshness & elegance provided by the altitude, as well as the structure & complexity from the estate’s extensive collection of mature, low-yielding vines.
