Portuguese white wine with style and substance, Invincible Number Two Douro Vinho Branco from Companhia de Vinhos Invencivel, a collaboration between renowned wine makers, Rita Marques who has been described as "the changing face of Douro winemaking" and Marc Kent of Boekenhoutskloof, whose wines I have been stocking for several years. They had previously worked together in South Africa and elsewhere in Portugal before buying an estate in Casais do Douro where this wine is produced.
