Ai Galera Encantado 2018
By Ai Galera
Delicate strawberry with mouthwatering finish. Delicious Portugese Pink! We think we've found our summer Rose!
Tasting Notes: A beautiful aroma of fresh red fruits with cherry being predominant. Intense flavours that match the aroma, fresh and delicate. The de-stemmed grapes were kept in contact with the skins for 6 to 8 hours, resulting in a slightly deeper pink colour. After which a controlled fermentation at 16ºC was carried out.
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.
Food Match : Perfect on it's own. With salads, sushi most Mediterranean dishes.
Grape : Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo in Spain)
