Ai Galera, Mistico, Tejo, Portugal

Ai Galera, Mistico, Tejo, Portugal

Producer Profile

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.

Viticulture

From vineyards around Lezíria & Charneca. Vines are planted on sandy-loam and sandy clay soils.

Winemaking

Direct pressing of the grapes, followed by the fermentation of the clarified must at 14ºC.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Golden yellow in colour, with plenty of ripe fruits on the aromas. This is a fresh and gentle wine with a pleasant finish.

Food Matching

As an apéritif, salads grilled fish.
