1995 Frei Jao "Poco do Lobo" Vinho Regional Beiras

SKU #1193969

A wine produced from Arinto, Bical and a few other grapes, this long aged, traditional Portuguese white brings to mind the waxy, yellow fruited, beautifully nuanced and detailed whites of Spain's Lopez de Heredia. The cellar at Frei Joao is similarly sized and nearly as old school, so if you're looking for a delicious, representative, old fashioned Portuguese white, or a more affordable version of the Viña Tondonia Blanco, this is your wine!

The Lopez de Heredia whites of Portugal? While we are not yet intimately familiar with this Portuguese producer, we did have the opportunity to taste this white, produced from 100% Arinto grapes, and were impressed by how well it has aged. With a similar bright citric acidity and old time gracefulness to the texture, this is something that we are very excited about.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
