Ai Galera Mistico
A growing interest of the wines of Portugal has bought attention to the previously underated region of Tejo, lying just south of Lisbon. Grapes are rumoured to have been grown on the backs of the Tejo river since Roman times.
This is made from a blend of Fernão Pires (otherwise known as Maria Gomes in Barraida) which offers a lovely perfumed aromas of citrus fruits and Verdelho that adds a backbone and some peach and melon flavours. A fresh, dry white ideally consumed young, either by itself or with light seafood dishes.

Long overlooked by the wine cognoscenti, the burgeoning interest in Portuguese wine is finally resulting in more awareness of the potential of this proud country. The previously undervalued Tejo region, lying to the south of Lisbon, is capable of producing wines of enormous value and character – something that is captured by Ai Galera. Inspired by the long, and sometimes extremely colourful history of the region – most notably the life of literati Marchioness Leonor of Távora, Ai Galera’s arresting imagery and even more arresting wine quality demands and hollers for your attention. Incredible value, intriguing indigenous varieties and supreme drinkability all add up to wines that thrill.
