Amoras is a brilliant, stony fresh white – a top example of modern Portuguese winemaking. Typical for here, it’s great value too – just the sort of wine we love to champion. Made from native grapes with Sauvignon, the wine's crisp and characterful.
Portugal cultivates a myriad of exciting grape varieties little known abroad. And their wines are all the more exciting and unique for it. What's more they always represent excellent value for money. Amoras is from an estate north of Lisbon, owned by the da Silva family for several generations. The soil, slopes and breezy conditions close to the Atlantic combine with long sunny days to make this ideal grape growing country. Amoras comprises Fernão Pires for its exotic spice, Arinto for crisp citrus character, Sauvignon Blanc for grassy freshness, and Moscatel for its appealing grapiness. We have often recommended this wine to Pinot Grigio lovers wanting to branch out. It’s the perfect apéritif and partner for seafood, salads and sushi.
