Vinho Regional Peninsula de Setubal, Portugal
Waterdog White is a delightful new white blend from Jose Maria da Fonseca in Portugal. Loving, loyal and intelligent, Portuguese Waterdogs are a treasured breed originally from the southern coast of Portugal - near where our winery originates. Waterdog white wine, a blend of Arinto and Fernão Pires grape varieties, has a peach and pineapple aroma and a touch of spices and wood with a citric acidity and a delicate minerality.
Under the guidance of Domingos Soares Franco - the first Portuguese winemaker to graduate from the recognized University of California-Davis - a team of hand-picked winemakers are responsible for undertaking a wide range of research, studies, experiments and innovation that make José Maria da Fonseca a pioneer in much of what is done in terms of enology in Portugal and in the world. This is a job that starts in the vineyard, covers the entire production process and ends in the bottled wine made available to the consumer.
Waterdog White pairs well with fresh salads, grilled white fish, and roasted chicken.
