Ai Galera, Poetico, Tejo, Portugal
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.
From around the region of Charneca on sandy-clay soils.
Each variety is fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel vats at 23 ºC.
No oak treatment
An intense ruby red colour. Vinous and clean aroma's with hints of red berry fruits. Round in the mouth and medium bodied. A well rounded finish with mellow tannin.
This gentle red works well with white meats and soft cheese.
