We've won three top awards for our Portuguese range and it’s gems like this brilliantly crisp white that fires up our Buyer to discover more. It is made from Fernão Pires by star winemaker Jaime Quendera and is brimful of stony, citrus freshness.
Wine critic for The Times Jane MacQuitty wrote: “Go to Portugal for great value.” That’s certainly true of the Rainha do Mar wines from multi award winning Jaime Quendera. The name means Queen of the Sea, and in terms of sheer seafood matching class this wine reigns supreme. It’s made from the aromatic, lemony Fernão Pires grape, from the Setúbal Peninsula. Centuries ago, Vasco da Gama set sail from here and discovered the sea route to India. Today Setúbal is better known as a surfers’ paradise and a winemakers’ nirvana. A sunny climate and cooling ocean breezes provide perfect grape growing conditions. This white is deliciously fresh and crisp. Serve chilled like the locals do, solo or with grilled fish, simple noodles or a crisp salad.
