MoThis Portuguese white wine could well become your favourite warm-weather tipple. Just bursting with ultra-refreshing, zesty lemony flavours, it's a guaranteed thirst-quencher. The kind of pick-me-up white wine that's a fridge favourite, discover why Portugal's one of our hottest wine countries right now.

Worth trying if you're a fan of Indian or Thai cuisine too, with the crispness going so well with spicy foods. And, if you like Sauvignon Blanc, why not try this out? At just 12% alcohol, it's a lightweight alternative, and a true wine bargain to boot.

The Producer

Founded by winemaking legend José Neiva Correia in 1998, DJF Vinhos is located in the Lisboa region which stretches north along the coast from the capital Lisbon. A simple philosophy with an ambitious aim: to transform the rich and diverse Portuguese varieties into top quality wines that are accessible to all. Quality and value for money are key, and the estate even buys in used oak barrels and employ two coopers to take them apart and strip them back to the new wood – as good as new for a fraction of the price. DJF is not short of fans, with more awards than any other Portuguese producer of the last 20 years, including red wine of the year at the IWC and twice Portuguese Winery of the Year in the New York Wine Competition since 2012.

The Winemaker

José’s winemaking CV is as impressive as the wines themselves. With both his mothers and fathers' families involved in winemaking, José and his seven brothers and sisters grew up on the Quinta de Porto Francos estate, now part of the DJF estate and one of the oldest in the region. With nearly 40 years’ experience in winemaking under his belt, José honed his skills at co-operative wineries and as a consultant to independent producers all over Europe.

In the words of Tim Atkin MW: “José deserves great credit for his contribution to the transformation of Portuguese wine. He is equally adept at making top end wines as he is producing inexpensive mass market blends, using international and local grapes with considerable skill. The Portuguese wine revolution wouldn't have happened without him.“

The Region

Sunshine is not in short supply in this picturesque region of rolling hills, yet cooling Atlantic breezes allow for a long, slow ripening period for the grapes which lends a fresh, elegant touch to the wines. A total of seventeen grape varieties are grown across a wide area with white varieties planted in cooler vineyards nearer the ocean and red varieties in warmer vineyards further inland. Extensive research is always on the cards, and José is credited with the introduction of several new varietals to the region including Albarino, Pinot Noir and more recently Dornfelder.

Lemon & Parsley Fishcakes

A great lunch or supper option served with green salad or chips, (depending on your attitude), these light fish cakes are crying out for a fresh, zingy and in the nicest way possible, fairly neutral white to pair up with the lemon and parsley notes in the dish. Try Loire or Portuguese whites.
