2016 Branco ~ Fernão Pires (Sant'Ana, Quinta de)

Quinta de Sant'Ana, Branco, Lisboa, Portugal 2016

{sustainable} 100% Fernão Pires

CRISP WHITE PEACH, ORANGE BLOSSOM & FLINT, PRISTINE & WHOLESOME

Fernão Pires (intermittently better known as Maria Gomes) is the most planted white grape in Portugal for good reason. It’s one of the few grapes with a reputation for being able to balance generous yields and generous flavor. When the yields are low, however, the flavors become even more interesting. Sant’Ana’s ten hectare estate (minuscule by most standards) not only provides us with a single-varietal, low yield Fernão Pires, it does so in a cooler climate more conducive to subtlety and acidity. The result is very refreshing, ripe but modest in alcohol, impeccably clean, interesting, and very easy to drink. Super-summery all year long!

Serving Suggestion: Pan fried flounder w/ almond flakes & white grape-shallot chutney. Turkey sandwich w/ mustard, bean sprouts, & hummus.
