Region

The Vinho Regional Lisboa (previously known as Estremadura) extends north and west of Lisbon, following the rugged Atlantic coastline. The windswept rolling landscape is dotted with old windmills and modern wind turbines overseeing vineyards and pine forest. It is Portugal`s third largest wine producing region in volume terms, but arguably the source of the country`s best value table wines. Most of the region enjoys a maritime climate that allows production of fresh whites and balanced red wines. The last ten years have seen a surge of ambitious small growers making far more interesting wines across a wide selection of grape varietals.

Producer

DFJ Vinhos is one of Portugal`s most innovative and highly awarded wine producers, winning best Portuguese producer in both the New York International Competition and Berliner Wine competition in 2018. They control estates in the Lisboa, Douro, Setubal, Alentejo and Tejo wine regions and work with 22 different grape varieties. The company is headed by Portugal’s top winemaker, José Neiva, who has worked with some of Portugal`s largest wineries and was one of the world`s most productive winemakers. He has now been leading the way for over 40 years and, at the recent `Portuguese Wine Oscars`, he was made `Senhor do Vinho` - the highest accolade for an outstanding career.
Tasting Notes
A dry crisp, refreshing wine, a clear and bright lemon in colour with a full fruit flavour and good body. The wine is made from selected Portuguese Fernao Pires, Arinto and Moscatel grapes with the addition of Chardonnay. Best drunk young whilst delicate and fruit forward in style, this is shown by the combination of delicate aromas of delicious apple and grapefruit with a lively citrus finish.
Food
Chilled, it is excellent with food or by itself. Will accompany fish and white meat, vegetarian and oriental dishes.
