Cartuxa EA, Alentejo 2009

Tasted 10/01/11, 13.5%. n/a UK retail, ca €8 in Portugal. Produced and
bottled by Fundação Eugénio de Almeida. This is an interesting wine,
quite popular and widely available in Portuguese supermarkets and
restaurants. This wine was produced in the Cartuxa winery with the local
grape varieties Roupeiro, Antão Vaz, and Perrum. It is a pale yellow
colour with great citrus fruit on the nose. There's a lovely fresh
acidity that makes it very food (and fish)-friendly. Hint of tropical
fruits on the palate. Nice everyday wine, drink now. 15.5 / 20
