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 â€“ something that is captured by Ai Galera. Inspired by the long, and sometimes extremely colourful history of the region â€“ most notably the life of literati Marchioness Leonor of TÃ¡vora, 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.
From vineyards around LezÃria & Charneca. Vines are planted on sandy-loam and sandy clay soils.
Direct pressing of the grapes, followed by the fermentation of the clarified must at 14ÂºC.
Golden yellow in colour, with plenty of ripe fruits on the aromas. This is a fresh and gentle wine with a pleasant finish.
Perfect as an apÃ©ritif, or with salads and grilled fish.
