AI GALERA ENCANTADO
Long overlooked by the wine cognoscenti, the burgeoning interest in Portuguese wine is finally resulting in more awareness of the potential of this proud country. The previously undervalued Tejo region, lying to the south of Lisbon, is capable of producing wines of enormous value and character – something that is captured by Ai Galera. Inspired by the long, and sometimes an extremely colourful history of the region – most notably the life of literati Marchioness Leonor of Távora, Ai Galera’s arresting imagery and even more arresting wine quality demands and hollers for your attention. Incredible value, intriguing indigenous varieties and supreme drinkability all add up to wines that thrill.
The destemmed grapes were kept in contact with the skins for 6 to 8 hours, after which a controlled fermentation at 16ºC was carried out. A beautiful aroma of fresh red fruits with cherry being predominant. Intense flavours that match the aroma, fresh and delicate. Try with Sushi, salad and Mediterranean foods.
