Vale de Lobos Branco, Quinta da Ribeirinha 2017

  • £12.50

Despite its long history of agriculture, the fertile Tejo region (divided by the river Tagus, or Rio Tejo, as it flows south to Lisbon and the Atlantic) is much less well known than many of Portugal's more obviously prestigious wine regions. Its wines have great character however, using traditional varieties but often in a more modern, accessible style. Quinta da Ribeirinha's vineyards lie to the north of the river, including the the Fernao Pires used to make this complex, aromatic white which spends two months in French oak (with some lees stirring) and combines lively citrus and pineapple notes with a rich, almost creamy texture and fresh mineral finish.
