Quinta do Convento do Paraiso "Euphoria" Vinho Branco '16

Algarve, the southern most region of Portugal, might be initially recognized as a picturesque beach hot spot for vacation goers. Luckily for visitors and locals alike, there is a burgeoning wine production scene just starting to take shape. While neighbors with Alentejo, Algarve doesn't experience nearly as hot of a climate. This is due to a chain of mountains that blocks winds from the north, while experiencing coastal influences from both the Mediterranean in the south and the Atlantic in the east.

Quinta do Convento do Paraíso ("our lady of paradise") is a relatively new wine project, that is under the greater and historical property at Quinta de Mata-Mouros, once a convent from the 12th century through the 19th century. The Quinta has a unique terroir, located near in the Arade river. The weather here is dry, pleasantly warm and the land fertile and lush.

The winery explores traditional Portuguese winemaking, with a modern hand. The Branco is a blend of Arinto and Alvarinho. Traditional lagar pressing, and then fermented in tank with temperature control. The wine is highly aromatic with candied citrus, ripe stone fruit and sweet almond and orange blossom. It has good drive through briny acidity alongside its luscious, textural weight.
