Winery: Casal da Coelheira

Region: Portugal, Tejo, Charneco

Varietals: Chardonnay, Arinto

Alcohol: 13.5%

Why We Love It: The Casal da Coelheira winery is located in the legendary wine region of Tejo, Portugal. Located just south of the Tejo River, the sandy soils and dry climate cause vines to struggle. And, struggling vines produce better wines. The struggle creates complexity and layers of flavor - that’s exactly how it stole our hearts and continues to keep us interested bottle after bottle. This Reserva Branco (White) is a special blend of 20% Arinto (a native varietal) and 80% Chardonnay, with a bit of French/neutral oak and 4 months sur lies (on the lees). It’s rich, well-balanced, food-friendly and a pleasure to drink all year round.

Pro Tip: Enjoy it chilled. Serve with grilled red snapper, grilled sardines (Sardinhas Assadas), or roasted chicken (try Piri Piri Chicken!). Bom apetite!
