João Pires Branco 2023



João Pires is an elegant dry 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. Dry 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 long, elegant, just 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?
