Joao Barbosa is a leading winemaker in the Alentejo region of Portugal, being the latest generation of a family deeply rooted in the wine industry here. Bearing the same name as his grandfather, Joao demonstrated from an early age his natural passion and talent for producing fine wine. Joao founded his JM Barbosa label in 1997, with 6.5ha of vineyards in Alto da Serra, Tejo and 10ha in Esperanca, Alentejo producing flagship wines such as Ninfa and Lapa dos Gaivoes, made exclusively from estate grown grapes. These wines express great individualality and are an authentic expressions of origin, really showing off how exciting modern Portuguese wines are, while still offering such good value for money.
A vibrant lemon-green, this is a wonderful blend which really works! The Sauvignon Blanc brings bright lemon-gooseberry aromas while the local Fernão Pires grape adds more body and further complexity to the aromatics. Quite full bodied on the palate with lovely texture, this is full of ripe stone fruits and gooseberry flavours, finishing long with added minerality. Enjoy while young and fresh, now to 2019.
