There’s more to Portugal’s zesty white wines than Vinho Verde, as this fresh, beautifully perfumed blend from the Tejo region proves.
What You Need To Know
Portugal’s dry reds and whites (as opposed to sweet, fortified port) have yet to become as trendy as, say, Argentina’s Malbecs or Germany’s Rieslings. That’s a shame, on the one hand, because the wines are terrific. On the other, it means that bargains abound, like this citrusy blend of local grapes from the Tejo region. Located northeast of Lisbon, Tejo has fertile soils that yield heavy crops of diluted grapes— unless growers cut yields, as Quinta da Alorna does. The winery, owned for five generations by the Lopo de Carvalho family, has lately become one of Tejo’s best by planting new varieties and hiring talents like Martta Reis Simões, who was named Tejo’s Winemaker of the Year in 2012.
