Tagus Creek Chardonnay/Fernão Pires 2013


Interesting fact: the Fernão Pires grape changes sex and becomes Maria Gomes as you travel further north in Portugal…
(In fact many Portuguese grapes have dual identities – Sousão/Vinhão, Aragonez/Tinta Roriz, Trincadeira/Tinta Amarela etc)

Tagus Creek Chardonnay/Fernão Pires 2013, Tejo, Portugal (£6.49 Asda)
Simple but honest and tasty wine, with the fat peachiness of ripe Chardonnay reined in by pithy Arinto, and a lightly floral note on the finish. B
