Tasting notes:

An intense ruby red colour. Vinous and clean aroma's with hints of red berry fruits. Round in the mouth and medium bodied. A well rounded finish with mellow tannin.

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 a temperature controlled 23ºC in stainless steel vats. 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:

This red works well with white meats, antipasti and soft cheeses. 

This wine is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.
