Dom Rafael White, Alentejo, Portugal
This elegant whitewashed adobe winery – the Adega – shaded by tall eucalyptus trees, nestles in one of the valleys, flanked by vineyards hasn't changed much since 1901. The Dom Rafael White is fermented in stainless steel vats at low temperatures and is bottled early so as not to lose it’s aromatic qualities and minerality. A young but structured white wine with lovely citrus characteristics of lime and lemon that gives it a strong personality. It is a great accompaniment to salad dishes, seafood, grilled or smoked and fish and cold meats.
