 Fernao Pires Wine

Fernao Pires (also known as Maria Gomes) is an aromatic white grape variety extensively grown throughout Portugal. Blended wines are far more common than varietal expressions of Fernao Pires in Portugal, despite the fact that it is the most commonly planted white wine variety in the country. The greatest concentrations of Fernao Pires vineyards are in Bairrada, Lisboa and, in particular, Ribatejo, where only a small percentage of the grapes find their way into DOC wine.

Wine can be produced from Fernao Pires in a number of styles. Dry white wine is the most common, but sparkling and sweet versions are also possible. Zest of lemon, lime and orange are common aroma descriptors, sometimes with a hint of spice. Other examples can show more honey and mineral flavors, especially as they age.

Fernao Pires Grapes

In the hot climates of central and southern Portugal, Fernao Pires can provide generous yields and often needs to be controlled to prevent overcropping. The vine is susceptible to frost and is not suitable to cooler areas. A little has been planted in South Africa and Australia.

The wine can response well to aging in old oak barrels and may cellar for up to five years in exceptional cases.
