Forget Burgundy White

DOC Beira Interior, a sub region of Cova da Beira. A blend of Síria and Fonte Cal, this wine reminded me of mineral-mineral-mineral, citrus, straw, slight oak, white flower...why do you need to drink Burgundy white if this is as good at half the price? Exactly, because it's an off-the-radar underrated Portugese boutique white. Seafood all the way, baby! ABV 13%. 4.2/5.0
