Only 500 bottles made from this young family winery in Portugal, who feature their two young daughters on the labels.
WOW - we love this Portuguese wine! It's very complex yet also nicely drinkable, made using the grape Fernão Pires.
Expect a touch of pleasant medicinal notes with white blossom touches and eucalyptus ...plus memories of Angostura Bitters (a first for us!) This really, really impressed! We think it's one of the best Portuguese wines we personally ever had!
Fermentation: Our orange wine slowly festered with ease on its skins and seeds. The eventual breakdown of the skin gave colour. Fermentation also helped release valuable polyphenols that helped with creating the flavour profile.
Aging phase: After the skins and seeds did their job, we then left the wine aging in talha lined with beeswax. Over time the wine slowly absorbed the flavors of not only the talha itself, but from the beeswax creating a wine containing many layers of complexity.
Tasting notes: This wine has the striking, tell tale aroma of Fernao Pires that consists of tangerine skin, summer melon, and faint honey. The wine reveals its minerality and presence of talha throughout the tasting process with a nice faint thread of acidity on the finish.
