WHITE WINE
V.R. PENÍNSULA DE SETÚBAL

First produced in 1947, BSE stands for “Branco Seco Especial” and is one of José Maria da Fonseca’s best known brands in Portugal.

BSE is produced in the Setubal wine region. Initially, the grape variety Fernão Pires gave the wine a fruity, distinctive aroma and a soft, dry palate. Nowadays, the blend has a predominance of the Antão Vaz grape, keeping its fruity aroma, elegant and velvet, with a soft and fresh palate.
