About Mateus Nicolau de Almeida
Mateus Nicolau de Almeida was Portugal's Young Wine maker of the year in 2014. He and his wife Teresa Amatzoy - the celebrated Spanish wine maker - work together producing their amazing wines. The Rabigato grape is declining in Portugal because of its low yield, many see it as not 'commercially viable' however the grape can produce beautiful wines with bags of character and freshness.
A complex wine with notes of peach and herbs and a lovely fresh acidity. Its long on the finish and exceptionally well balanced. This is a unique wine, from a great producer, using a grape that needs to be experienced.
