Maria Mansa is produced by Quinta do Noval from carefully selected grapes originated from the highest areas of the Demarcated Region of the Douro, which are more favourable to the production of white wines.
"Maria Mansa white 2019 combines the fruit and freshness provided by the unique character of our terroir and its traditional regional varieties. The wine looks clear and bright, has a beautiful tone with slight citrus overtones. Intense aromas with prominent notes of white, tropical and citrus fruit. On the palate, the wine has a vibrant acidity and further notes of citrus and floral aromas. Nice and long aftertaste."
Carlos Agrellos, Technical Director
