Quinta de Pancas 'Forgotten Field' Lisboa White 2016
An excellent Portuguese white from the Lisbon region, easy drinking with rounded peach and citrus flavours.
This excellent Portuguese white from the Lisbon region is produced by Quinta de Pancas. The vineyards are located about 45 kilometers northwest of Lisbon, between the Serra de Montejunto Mountain range and the flatlands of the right bank of the famous Tagus river. Here the landscape is wild and natural, with mountains, hills, valleys and plains. Winemaker Gilberto Marques mixes traditional grape varieties with modern techniques to produce characterful but accessible wines.
A wonderful blend of the local Arinto, Fernão Pires and Vital grapes, this is an easy going and delicious white. The aroma is fresh with citrus, herbal/floral and peach notes, with the palate being full of rounded stone fruit flavours with a twist of lime and passionfruit. This has a medium weight and at just 12% abv is a light and fresh style, to enjoy while young. Try with fish and salads.
