Will you be stocking up at the supermarket when in-house PO is otherwise engaged? Perhaps their rose is there too.

I will be moving on from Vinho Verde, over to Bairrada to try the `09 Campolargo Branco which is close to 90% Cercial. This wine was gifted to me by the owners of my fave winestore downtown (Xmas 2012). Tasted at a staff do, the concensus was that this white and the Pinot Noir were top drawer. Stay tuned .

Carlos Campolargo was in town again recently, sure has a very interesting portfolio of wines, including a Pinot Noir which I have in the cellar. His wines can be quite expensive, this Cerceal blend was close to $40 Cdn.
13% alc, 85% Cerceal with a little Arinto and Bical, good natural cork.
Very light golden color, pear citrus and some oak on the nose with some nutty tones on day 2.
Initial entry thought was dry, excellent acidity. Citrus, herbal, lime, "grapefruit" from across the table. I found it very appealing and really quite unique as one does not often come across such a blend. Very flavorful and went well with cod fritters and a cucumber salad.
