A lovely white from intriguing indigenous grapes. This is amazing value for money.

Tasting notes:

Golden yellow in colour, with plenty of ripe fruits on the aromas. This is a fresh and gentle wine with a pleasant finish.

About the Wine:

The grapes are from vineyards around Lezíria & Charneca. The vines are planted on sandy-loam and sandy clay soils. Direct pressing of the grapes, followed by the fermentation of the clarified must at 14ºC gives a lovely fresh flavour. The wine undergoes no oak treatment.

About the Producer:

Long overlooked by the wine cognoscenti, the burgeoning interest in Portuguese wine is finally resulting in more awareness of the potential of this proud country. The previously undervalued Tejo region, lying to the south of Lisbon, is capable of producing wines of enormous value and character – something that is captured by Ai Galera. Inspired by the long, and sometimes extremely colourful history of the region – most notably the life of literati Marchioness Leonor of Távora, Ai Galera’s arresting imagery and even more arresting wine quality demands and hollers for your attention. Incredible value, intriguing indigenous varieties and supreme drinkability all add up to wines that thrill.

Food Match:

Ideal as an aperitif or with salads or grilled fish dishes. 

This wine is suitable for vegetarians but not vegans.
