This connoisseur's collection contains three mineral whites, chosen for their complexity and richness. Explore three of Portugal's wine growing regions, Bairrada, the Açores and the Alentejo.
Messias Clássico, 2012, Bairrada
This white is a blend of indigenous varieties, Bical and Cercial, from Bairrada's chalky limestone and clay soils. Golden in colour, the nose is complex with notes of wet clay and bees wax. On the palate stone fruits show with refreshing green herbs, mineral and still surprisingly youthfully.
Adega do Vulcão Ameixâmbar, 2018, Açores
A maiden release of just 2,600 bottles, predominantly sourced from the island of Faial, in the Azores, it is a blend of 90% Arinto-dos-Açores and 10% Terrantez-do-Pico. Bone dry, yet quite fat in the mouth, with great dry extract, this textural white has lingering, shimmering, salty, crystalline minerality, with an undertow of savoury whetstone. Benchmark stuff, it is well-endowed with the ‘weightless gravity’ borne of volcanic soils.
Bojador Talha, 2018, Alentejo
A blend of Perrum, Roupeiro, Rabo de Ovelha and Manteudo. This organic wine is vinified in traditional clay jars ‘Talha’, the Portuguese equivalent of amphora and fermented with regional, indigenous yeasts. Its Golden colour is caused by long skin contact, with aromas of bee’s wax and marmalade, alongside earthy mineral notes.
