Boina is the result of two friends’ search for great old forgotten vineyards in Portugal’s stunning Douro valley. The vines that grew the fruit for this wine are more than 90 years old and are mixed plantings of dozens of rare old grape varieties - they haven’t even been able to identify many of them!
Boina is a great example of why Portuguese whites are getting more and more attention. It is light and fresh but with a lovely texture and a long, long finish. It’s got a lovely fruitiness without being *too* fruity, with a nutty touch that adds interest.
