Quetzal Reserva White

25.45 

Our excellent white Reserva is produced exclusively from pure Antão Vaz grapes from our oldest vineyards. They are picked by hand and processed by gravity in our modern cellar. They ferment in French oak barrels for 6 months and age in our cellars. The result is a complex aroma of tropical fruits, toast and spices.
