Taste why Wine Spectator’s Matt Kramer calls Portugal “the most exciting wine place on the planet today” with this deeply satisfying white. The peachy, gently spiced Lobo e Falcão Branco is just as popular as its red sibling – super fresh, too.
"Fabulous wine. So distinctive – it tastes like it should be a lot more expensive!"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
In 2017 we won our third award for our Portuguese wines and its wines like this that keep our Buyer going back for more. It is from a grand estate dating back to the 17th century which once served as the King of Portugal’s falconry. Lobo e Falcão (Wolf and Falcon) is a tribute to winemaker José Lobo de Vasconcelos’ ancestors, who were its caretakers. It is a blend of native grapes Fernão Pires, Alvarinho and Muscat, which thrive in the property’s sandy soils and ripen to perfection under the Portuguese sun. You’ll love its aromas of juicy, ripe peach and orange blossom, followed by rich, bright flavours of stone fruit, spice and grapey freshness. Opulent and aromatic, this is a top pick solo or with chicken or a creamy vegetable risotto.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
