Caves São João Poço do Lobo Branco 1994
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
The 1994 Arinto "Poço do Lobo" is another fascinating old white from this winery's old inventory. Bright and a little intense, this is a lively white despite its age, with a dried-honey finish that lingers. It has surprising tension on the finish too. The grip on the finish is remarkable relative to its age, actually. This is certainly also mature and complex, but that you'd expect. I'm not sure I liked this quite as much as the last one I saw (the 1995), granting that they are not side by side, but it is still an intriguing and exceptional white. This is a fine experience at a nice price considering its age and provenance. Bairrada whites can age (as do the reds). This still has plenty of life left, maybe much more than anticipated, but let's be cautious.
