Rota de Cabral White - Tejo
REGION: Tejo, Portgual
VARIETIES: Fernao Pires, Trincadeira das Pretas
When our resident winemaker, Ian, went on a tasting trip to Tejo, he wasn't sure what he'd find. Quinta da Ribeirinha was certainly one of the highlights, producing a wide range of wines at very different price points, always with a style that is very typical of the region: crisp, mineral and almost bitter-almond in flavour. This is their entry-level white, and blindingly good value it is too. Fernao Pires is one of the star grapes of the region, producing a huge range of styles.
