Ai Galera, Mistico, Tejo, Portugal

Regular price £7.99

Great example of modern Portuguese whites - fruit driven, balanced and hugely enjoyable.

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.

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