Grapes, Fernão Pires & Native Varieties
Serving: cold (6–11°C)
About: The Uncondemned wines are produced from very old "backyard” vineyards in rural areas north of Lisbon. The vines (120 -140 years old) are condemned to become abandoned due to the ageing of their elderly owners. The wine was in the beginning a product simply enjoyed at home by the makers, and then commercialized locally - similarly to the local olive oil and fruit & vegetables.
This cuvée is a crispy dry and elegant, well structured white, boasting ripe notes of melon & stone fruits. It pairs incredibly well with the notion that you are sipping on a fascinating pocket of history, saved just in time from disappearance.
