Portugal - DOC Tejo

Terra Silvestre 2018

€530 Bottle of 10cl

Tempt yourself with this lemon-gold coloured white wine. On the nose, it has aromas of ripe fruit and quince leading into vegetal notes and sweet spices which are typical of Arinto, an ancestral regional grape. The palate has delicious long-lasting flavours matching the nose, with a lively yet round mouthfeel that leads gradually into a fresh and zippy finish. An irresistible taste of Portugal!

Winemaker

José Batoreu

This estate’s history began in 1860 when Ignacio Batoreu and José N. Canteiro decided to plant vines in the Tejo valley, 100 kilometres north of Lisbon. In 1935, the founders’ respective grandchildren married each other, making the vineyard a true family business seeking to produce the best wines in the region. Today José Batoreu is in charge at the estate and continues to place a strong focus on local grape varieties.
