Particularly produces fresh, young and light wines. However, this grape also has the capacity to produce quality wines (when blended with Arinto and Sercial to provide more structure), creating wines of medium-body with pronounced fruit that are well-balanced and delicate when young. When oaked, creating wines capable of improving with age.
