Tasting Note

Davila L100 has a high aromatic potential and personality. Unique in the nose with aromas of ripe stone fruit, smooth and entangled with white flower scents. It is a revelation of the Loureiro grape potential from O Rosal area. A balm of flowers in the mouth, with a long, lingering finish. Vegan.

Accolades and Press Comments
