This connoisseur's collection contains three mineral whites, chosen for their complexity and richness. Explore three of Portugal's wine growing regions, Douro, the Açores and Dão

Mateus Nicolau de Almeida Eremitas 'Amon de Kelia', 2018, Douro

Nicolau de Almeida calls this collection of old vine unoaked single parcel Rabigatos his “soil wines”. The soil is schist, but with nuances that give different characteristics to the wines. The wines are all made in the same way, with the fruit macerating on skins for a few hours in a granite basin. After pressing, the wine is racked into concrete vats where it ferments spontaneously without temperature control. 
The Amon has notes of dried lavender and orange peel with a mineral streak. White peach and nectarines with moderate acidity that doesn’t kill the sweetness of the fruit. Lighter, secondary layers of espresso roast and smoke add contrast. Lots of body and great mouthfeel.

Quinta das Marias 'Crudus', 2018, Dão

This 100% Encruzado hails from Quinta das Marias’ oldest vines, planted in 1990.  The handpicked grapes underwent further selection in the winery.  After a short period of skin contact, the grapes were pressed, then naturally fermented in French and Austrian barrels. The resulting wine aged for 20 months on light lees and was bottled unfiltered and unfined. With rapier-like acidity, this ultra-long Encruzado is fine and persistent, with ripe lemon, steely grapefruit, al dente white peach and salty minerality.

Pico Wines 'Frei Gigante', 2018, Açores

Named after the monk who planted the first vines on this island, Frei Gigante, is a blend of all three of the main varieties found on Pico, made in stainless steel with temperature control and a short ageing on fine lees. Bright and zippy, citrus and floral, mineral and textured with fresh acidity and mild salinity. A beautifully balanced complex wine
