Description

A tremendous, classy and rich wine with lots of melon and honey shining through. Deep in flavour but with amazing freshness as the acidity and minerality leaves a long lasting finish. It is particularly well matched with white wine sauces with intense herbs such as marjoram and tarragon. Wonderful with warm root vegetables as well as with creamy textured cheeses.

  • Delivery Information

From an old single vineyard field blend (about 10 different grape varieties), the grapes are hand harvested harvest, crushed and pressed, before natural fermentation and ageing for 12 months in very old 225l oak barrels. No malolactic and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Joao Afonso has been blessed with two amazing and fascinating careers and now his evolution from a leading ballet dancer to a top Portuguese natural garage wine producer is complete!

In 1994 after a small experience with the then young Dirk Niepoort he began his love affair

with wine with minimal intervention and optimum quality. He is a wine maker that has an obsession with wines from old vineyards, cared for with organic and sustainable awareness to achieve wines that can be classed as natural.

“A wine is a natural product, we cannot pour anything into the wine that isn’t necessary”. This simple phrase of Rui Alves, known as the godfather of the Portuguese natural wine movement, ended up constituting the whole oenological orientation of Joao Afonso.

The Cabecas do Reguengo wine dream started exclusively from centuries-old vineyards, in organic production mode to which he added biodynamic practices that have been his mantra since the beginning of the new century!
