Local Portuguese grape varieties with a little Viognier
Fragrant dry white wine with a beautiful aroma of ripe yellow fruit, light oak and floral nuances. The taste starts full, round and aromatic and ends balanced, with a long aftertaste.
Alexandre Relvas from Portugal
This special white wine is made from antão vaz, verdelho and a little viognier. The grapes are picked manually early in the morning. The wine ferments at a low temperature; half in tanks and half in large oak barrels of 400 liters. After this, the assembly of both parts matures in small oak casks for about six months.
This luxurious way of making wine has a characteristic influence on the aroma and taste and gives more strength and complexity. As a result, the wine also tastes good with white meat, poultry and, for example, shrimps with garlic.
The vineyards of this beautiful domain are located in the Alentejo, east of Lisbon. According to many wine writers, this is currently the most exciting wine region in Portugal. For father and son, both with the name Alexandre Relvas, optimally ripe grapes and a sophisticated vinification are the conditions for full-bodied and soft wines. This distinguishes them from mass producers who have to work with less homogeneously ripe grapes.
