Malvasia de Colares is an aromatic white grape that delivers salinity and texture, with subtle petrol notes on the nose, and a long finish. The '14 from Adega Regional was great when tasted in February of 2018. Definitely a textbook Colares white that should age well for the next 10+ years. EL
From the lovely couple at Casa de Mouraz, Biotite is mostly Loureiro from certified organic vineyards in the Vinho Verde region, grown on granitic soils in the valley of the Lima River. This is a lovely mineral driven white, and a real eyeopener to the potential of the Vinho Verde wines. Most people just know the spritzy low alcohol whites (from early harvested usually under-ripe grapes), but this is a real wine, made from mature fruit and allowed to ferment naturally for a different kind of expression. Enjoy on its own on a sunny afternoon or with seafood, chicken, vegetables, sushi, salads, and cheeses.
The Phaunus Pet Nat is all Loureiro, vinified in stainless steel with no added yeast or sugar. There is a short period of maceration, and disgorgement is after 5 months of aging, with no filtration or fining. Super dry, refreshing and textured, this is a wonderful addition to the ever-changing Pet-Nat section here at Chambers, and comes highly recommended for any fan of tasty bubbles. Eben Lillie
100% Vital, an indigenous Portuguese grape variety, from 50 year old vines on limestone soils in the Serra de Montejunto outside Lisbon. Directly after harvest the grapes were exposed to the skins for one day, then pressed and fermented in stainless steel. This wine shows gentle white flowers on the nose with a palate of pear and citrus before a delicately saline finish. Pair with 'Gambas al Ajillo' (shrimp fried with garlic), other well flavored shellfish dishes, or soft cheeses. Ben Fletcher
Crystallao and Alfrochiero from the unforgettable Tiago Teles, in the Bairrada DO of Portugal. Tiago is in spirit and practice aligned with what some call the "natural wine" movement. Fermentation is always with indigenous yeast, with minimal addition of sulfur, and very little extraction, new oak, or any other modern techniques. He's enthusiastic about Portugal's history and the future of winemaking in this small but important country. The Gilda is medium bodied, with great energy and acidity to keep it fresh. An exciting addition to our Portugese section! Eben Lillie
