Critics & Reviews:
-International Wine Report, October ’17 gave 90 points to 2016 Casal de Armán Eira dos Mouros. “This 100% Treixadura begins with bright aromatics of white peach, starfruit, and lemon curd. Lithe and rich, the mouthfeel is impressive. The mid-palate reveals lemon zest, kumquat, Gravenstein apple and lychee flavors as the wine reveals an exotic edge. This finishes long with Meyer lemon flavors lingering.”
-Wine Spectator, September ’17 gave 89 points to 2015 Casal de Armán Eira dos Mouros. “Peach, lime, honeysuckle and beeswax notes mingle in this round white. Bright and balanced, with generous texture and a fresh finish. Not forceful, but expressive. Treixadura…”
