Your new favourite fizz! This super sparkling wine from one of our favourite Dão producers, Quinta de Cabriz, is made with the Champagne method, but with all indigenous Portuguese grape varieties. It's full of fleshy white fruit, citrus, biscuit and warm toasted cereals. Fruity, fresh, balanced and crystalline, with a crunchy finish and a captivating mousse, this is a real showcase of the quality and value of Portuguese sparkling wine.
Tempranillo Blanco balances the two styles of white Rioja; it's oaked and complex, but still with refreshing green fruit and acidity. Delicate aromas of white flowers are layered with green apple and pear, an elegant creamy texture and a deliciously long and mouthwatering finish.
The average vine in Côtes de Provence receives 2800 hours of sunshine per vintage – hence the name of this wine. Our best selling rosé is crisp, super pale and very refreshing, showing bright red berries mixed with notes of peach.
The story of this wine is the story of Ana Rola, born and bred in the Douro, who from an early age knew what she wanted to do. Using her extensive knowledge of the region she sourced the best grapes from old vines. This is a spicy, warm-hearted blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tempranillo, with a highly concentrated nose of dark fruit, surrounded by delicate floral tones.
