João Pires Branco 2023

15.75

Description

João Pires is a fruity, floral white produced from Moscatel de Setúbal grapes, eponymous to this southern region of Portugal.

Grapes are picked at night and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel, prior to maturation on the lees, this is maximum fruit expression. Light straw-yellow in colour and intensely aromatic, wafts of mango, papaya, orange blossom and lemon zest, you want to dive in. Tangy and piquant on the open, sweet stone-fruit flavours intermingle with tangy citrus notes, a fine minerality revealing a myriad of floral and soft spice notes on a juicy, off-dry finish. Very more-ish.

Serve up with any seafood or lightly spicy dishes, or even better combine the two — Sri Lankan monkfish curry anyone?
