Whites Wines to excite you in Portugal

Whites Wines to excite you in Portugal | Wine Liquid Lisbon | Scoop.it

It’s time to lift the lid on ‘Europe’s best-kept-secret’.
Portuguese winemakers have been too modest for too long about their fresh, mineral white wines from unique varieties, says Sarah Ahmed.

In Bucelas, one of the DOCs of the generic Vinho Regional (VR) of Lisboa, Arinto’s high acidity earned it the 19th-century moniker Lisbon Hock.

Mary H Goudie's insight:

Nothing could be better than a glass of chilled Bucelas white wine on a hot day to take  Summer in the City  to a new level. So very chic to drink a wine from the wine region of you very own European capital city - #Lisbon of course.

Lisboa: living up at last to its white wine potential

The region encompasses the long strip of Atlantic coastline between the Tagus estuary in the south to Beira in the north.  Inland, it stretches to the borders of the Tejo region.

With its temperate maritime (Atlantic) climate and Jurassic pockets of limestone and clay, this productive region (according to the IVV, Portugal’s largest wine production and vine area) undoubtedly has potential.

Yet outside Arinto-focused DOC Bucelas, only a handful of producers, notably Monte D’Oiro and Quinta de Chocapalha, have successfully harnessed it. 

Mary H Goudie's insight:

This year I have fallen in love with this Portuguese #Lisbon #wine region. Quinta da Chocapalha, Quinta da Carrafouchas & Quinta da Murta are firm favorites.
