2019 Lisboa Branco (Sant'Ana, Quinta de)

Quinta de Sant'Ana, Branco, Lisboa, Portugal 2019

{organic}

83% Fernão Pires, 17% Verdelho

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 tiny ten hectare estate not only provides us with low yield Fernão Pires (blended with a little Verdelho, for extra energy), it does so in a cool climate 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.

2020 Pet-Nat Espumante Branco "Duckman" (Pato, João)

João Pato, Pet-Nat Espumante Branco “Duckman”, Lisboa, Portugal NV

{sustainable} 100% Fernão Pires

CITRUSY, BRINEY, FIZZY, TANGERINE & PEACH

If you’re looking for an intro to natural wine, look no further! Maria João Pato (Pato means “duck” in Portuguese) uses only indigenous grapes and minimal intervention. For these wines made from her family’s estate she assumes the identity of the mysterious Duckman, a natural wine winemaker (superhero?), to differentiate hers from her family’s more classical wines. This one is accessible, funky, and a fizzy, cloudy intro to the wild world of pet-nats!

Serving Suggestion: Thai green curry & jasmine rice; deep-fried Portuguese sweet dough; Vietnamese vermicelli salad w/ red bell pepper, lime, peanuts, mint & cilantro
