Caves São João Bruto Reserva 2015

Bairrada, Northern Portugal, PortugalCaves São João was established in 1920 by brothers José, Manuel and Albano Costa. After initially specializing in selling Douro wines, they turned their focus on their home region of Bairrada. This reserva bruto is a classical method dry, toasty blend of bical, chardonnay, maria gomes and arinto, fermented in stainless before a year on lees in bottle. Ripping acidity lifts bitter lemon, pear skin, green fruits, dried chamomile flowers, with a finish verging on harsh due to the bracing acids. Suitable for an aperitif with olives, anchovies or bacalao croquettes with aioli.Tasted: 11 April 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 private wine stores Producer: Caves São JoãoDistributors: Liberty Import Merchants
