Tropical & Floral

Paulo Laureano is one of the most respected Portuguese winemakers and a reference for wines in the Alentejo region. Agronomist and oenologist, trained between Portugal, Australia, and Spain, after teaching at the University of Évora for 10 years, he decided to dedicate himself exclusively to what has moved him since 2003, making wine.

As the name indicates, this wine is made with old vines of Portuguese native varieties such as Antão Vaz, Arinto and Fernão Pires. The three of them are vinified separately and blended before bottling, being the Antão Vaz fermented in barrels, and the other two in stainless steel.

Fresh and elegant, with aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and hints of white flowers. On the palate, this blend of white varieties is silky and creamy, and has an excellent acidity.

Pair this wine with grilled fish and soft cheeses.

About the Winery

Paulo Laureano

Paulo Laureano is one of the most respected Portuguese winemakers and a reference for wines in the Alentejo.

Agronomist, winemaker trained between Portugal, Australia and Spain, after teaching at the University of Évora for 10 years, decided to dedicate himself, exclusively, to what has moved him since 1993: designing wines. Especially in the company he created with his family in 1999 and which has become increasingly important in his life.

Paulo Laureano defines himself as a minimalist winemaker, for whom designing wines is a passion, unveiling their aromas and flavors, evaluating and optimizing the reasons for his identity and personality, promoting them as true sources of pleasure.

His exclusive bet on Portuguese varieties reflects his way of being and looking at wine as a factor of culture and civilization.

91 points - David Lawrason

2020 vintage: This buxom white blends three local white varieties including antao vaz, arinto and fernao pires. It has quite deep colour and a very ripe and rich feel. I kept expecting a wave of oak but it is so very subtle, with only the antao being fermented in barrel. It has ripe peach, melon and slightly herbal and ginger nuances. It is full bodied, quite creamy yet fresh at the same time. The length is excellent. The alcohol is on slow burn but only at 12.5%. This is very characterful and excellent value. Tasted April 2022
