My first white wine from the Lisbon wine region, hooray! This region borders the Atlantic, bringing great salinity to its wines. This wine is a rich, medium bodied white, with body and structure that is wonderful on its own but can really hold up to more substantial food pairings. Fernão Pires is very aromatic with notes of flowers and honeysuckle on the nose and apple and melon on the palate. This wine is 90% stainless steel fermented, 10% fermented in new french oak. Delicious!
Wine Region: Lisboa
Varietals: 100% Fernãno Pires
Pairings: The rich body of this wine pairs with roasted chicken, full flavored veggies like mushrooms, lobster and rich seafood dishes. My go-to would be pairing this wine with green chile chicken enchiladas.
