Something different here, a Lisbon white made from 100% Maria Gomes, or Fernão Pires as it’s known in other parts of Portugal.
This is just fantastic bang for buck, a fresh, zippy, zesty aperitif or seafood wine, clear straw-gold in colour and displaying lemon, gooseberry and elderflower on the nose. The palate weight and concentration is really impressive, lithe and minerally with heaps of lemon curd, pineapple, green apple and lime zest, with loads of length, the taste and texture coating the mouth with fresh sweet citrussy flavours.
Serve up with fresh calamari or shellfish, especially freshly shucked oysters.
