Mariana - best buy in white!

2012 Herdade Do Rocim Branco Mariana...$14.99
The 2012 Branco Mariana is a tank-fermented blend of 60% Antao Vaz, 30% Arinto and (more unusually for the region) 10% Alvarinho. It comes in at 12.5% alcohol. This is awfully tasty, plump, juicy and quite delicious, but well-balanced as well. It doesn’t have a lot of verve, but it has a fresh feel to it and enticing fruit. 
Rated 88/100 The Wine Advocate
