Tasting Notes: An interesting nose of pear & mineral brings this Fernao Pires onto the palate with considerable grace for its relatively high alcohol content (13.5 %). The mouthfeel is both lush as well as laced with a mineral quality that makes this wine perfect with grilled fish & veggies. The balance is (again) uncharacteristically rounded & level for a white of 13.5% alcohol, and upon breathing the wine shows no sign of breaking apart. I often see the phrase ‘perfect for grilling’ used for everything that grows on a vine, especially as the summer begins to cook things up. This time, and with this particular wine, the description of being ‘perfect for the grill’ is far more than just some kind of filler or shelf-talking point; it’s the genuine article.


Winemaker's Notes:

Quinta de Sant'Ana is only a short distance from the Atlantic coast and benefits from a great climate with cool evenings and mornings, but lovely hot afternoons to produce fruit of the highest quality, yet which retains the essential acidity for this variety. Made from selected grapes, hand harvested, this fresh, crisp, full flavoured dry white is made from Fernao Pires, Portugal's most planted white grape variety. The wine has a delicate peach and stone-fruit character, a faint white pepper note, and a clean lingering aftertaste.
