Vibrant ripe lemons
Quinta da Romeira has been producing wines since 1703 and is one of the most prestigious estates in Bucelas, Portugal’s only exclusively white wine appellation. Quinta da Romeira has a remarkable history. During the Peninsula Wars, the Duke of Wellington used the estate as his headquarters, developed a taste for their wines, and brought them home to London as an offering to King George IV. They soon gained a following in Britain, with celebrity fans including Charles Dickens and Lord Byron.
The ‘Prova Régia’ is a nod to this royal endorsement, with the name translating as ‘royal approval’. Made from 100% Arinto, an indigenous grape to Portugal that produces exceptional, age-worthy whites with the ability to evolve over 7 or more years, revealing flavors of beeswax and nuts. This is a vibrant wine with aromas of ripe lemon, green apple, and a marked minerality. Four months of lees stirring add texture to the palate and a crisp acidity carries the bright fruit flavours through to a clean finish.
Richer seafood dishes such as Portuguese bacalhau (salt cod), scallops in butter sauce, Any fresh lobster or crab dish.
