The Oddbins Take

We love Portugal because they don't play by anyone else's rules when it comes to winemaking. The world wants Cabernet Sauvignon, Portugal carries on growing Touriga Nacional; the public move to light, early aging, easy drinking wines? Here, have some Port. Perhaps because they are cut off from the rest of Europe by the Pyrenees, Portugal have never fallen into the trap of ripping up their indigenous grapes and replacing them with internationally commercial ones.


Today, the plethora of native grape varieties is the Portuguese wine industries greatest resource. The breadth of styles that is not replicated anywhere else in the world is astonishing. Take the Serpentina Reserva White, which is made with a blend of Rabigato and Codega Do Larinho... We're not sure these are even grapes! However, the resultant wine has a deliciously mouth-watering natural acidity and minerality. Incredibly fresh and persistent on the palate the wine shows notes of white blossom, grapefruit and mineral salt.

    Some people have a misconception that white wine is somehow less serious than their red cousins. Which is of course nonsense; just as with reds, there are white wines that age almost indefinitely, have overwhelming complexity and are so distinct that you recognise them long before your lips have touched the glass. In fact, some whites are so serious we forgo a traditional tasting note and merely post the monocle-man emoji! In this case of 6, you’ll find some of the most well-known grape varieties and styles the white wine world has to offer!
