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.
