Established in 1942, Mateus is a Portuguese brand of wine from Sogrape Vinhos Portugal. This family-run company is known for its large range of Portuguese wines and spirits that it distributes all over the world. Mateus Rosé became the flagship wine for the company, slowly gaining popularity around the world. Over time, more versions of Mateus were released, using the same iconic bottle: short, plump, and flask-shaped. Now a global brand, Mateus has a delicious range of rosés suited for a wide range of occasions.

The white version of this wine is Mateus Blanco . Light, fresh, and slightly fizzy, this is a beautiful young wine made with Fernão Pires, Bical, Arinto, and Malvasia grapes. Modern winemaking techniques paired with an extensive amount of experience have crafted a beautiful white wine that is extraordinarily versatile. Nicely acidic, this fruity white is refreshing on its own. It also pairs well with grilled fish and seafood as well as with other lighter dishes.

The bright sensation of the bubbles on the tongue make this wine feel celebratory while the flavour makes it perfect for every day drinking. Mateus Blanco can be enjoyed in both leisurely moments and celebrations as well. It is all up to you! Just make sure to chill it well beforehand.

Description · Sogrape Vinhos

Mateus Blanco (Arinto, Bical, Fernao Pires and Malvasía)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Mateus Blanco is a pale-lemon-coloured wine.
  • Nose: The nose is young and very pronounced. Mateus Blanco has a very fruity and floral bouquet with notes of lemon, lime, apples and blossom.
  • Mouth: This is a light-bodied, slightly fizzy wine with a fresh acidity, some residual sugar and a medium-long, pleasant finish. It shows flavours of lemon, apple and lime, a hint of honeysuckle and floral notes.

APPELLATION: Alentejo

VINEYARD: Although this region and producer were world-renowned for their rose wine, made in a special style, lately many producers, among which Mateus is the leading one, have started producing white wine in a similar semi-sparkling style. The grapes are derived from different white variety growers inside the appellation.

GRAPES: Fernão Pires, Bical, Arinto, Malvasia

AGEING: It does not go through barrel ageing before bottling.

PREPARATION: The grapes are harvested, de-stemmed and crushed. The fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks in a temperature-controlled environment. After the fermentation is done, the wine is refined and cold-stabilized prior to the bottling.

PAIRING: It can be enjoyed as an aperitif but also pairs amazingly with grilled fish, seafood, salad and light meat meals or snacks.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: This wine is made to be consumed youthful and therefore should not be bottle aged for longer than 2 years. Before opening, it should be cooled down to 6-8°C

ALCOHOL: 10%
