Raised by the Alves family, AdegaMãe is born as a tribute from the men to the family’s matriarch, Manuela Alves. North from Lisbon and just a step away from the ocean, AdegaMãe brings out the best of a terroir strongly influenced by the prevailing sea breezes, standing out for its Atlantic-inspired wines, brimming with character, freshness and minerality. The winery stands out for its modern architecture and the quality of its wines.
The wine is a perfect blend of Chardonnay (33%) and the Portuguese native Arinto (67%) grape varieties.
A medium-straw colored wine.
On the nose, aromas of lemon zest, grapefruit, green apple and white peach. With some floral notes, chamomile and vanilla.
On the palate, light-bodied wine with a strong presence of citrus flavors, which confirm the aromas in the mouth with a slightly sour taste. A fresh wine with pleasant acidity, good minerality and a very smooth, creamy finish.
A great regional, dry white wine from Lisboa with balanced alcohol (13%).
Due to its lemon zest-like flavors, this wine is matching well with seafood or the famous Portuguese salty Bacalhau (cod), or any creamy, buttery flavors, even lobster.
