Stella Blanco 2010, Setubal (Portugal), 12% abv, €8.99
Looking for a versatile white wine for the summer? Then look no further than this excellent Portuguese white.
Colour is that of light straw and it has a lovely scent (not over-powering in any way). On the palate, rich fruit (mainly mango) flavours abound in an almost creamy mouthfeel, yet it is crisp and dry.
It is produced from the famous dry Muscats grown in the Pegoes region of the Setubal peninsula and is great value for money. Oh. Don’t forget to “serve this really cold”!
• Watch out also for its red counterpart, the Stella Rosso.
