Passadouro white 2022 is characterized by its intense fruity character coupled with some very attractive floral notes and white pulp fruit. Very elegant and balanced on the palate. This delicious fruit and acidity are all wrapped in subtle vanilla and oaky undertones from the barrel fermentation and ageing. A long aftertaste follows.
