Pale straw in colour. The bouquet is bursting with tropical fruit and a refreshing streak of lime, this is a fresh and fragrant. The palate adds freshness and tropical notes on a crisp fresh finish.

With over 400 years of history, the prestigious Cartuxa winery is located in the Évora sub-region of the Alentejo, right in the heart of Portugal. In a nutshell: Cartuxa is one of the oldest wineries in Portugal and is steeped in history. Vineyards have been on the same Quinta de Valbom site in Évora since 1517 when the Jesuits established the second oldest university in Portugal. The wines of Cartuxa are produced within the Alentejo sub-region of Évora and have long been legendary within Portugal. Indeed, Pêra-Manca has a long pedigree that is intertwined with Portuguese history. Not only were the wines from the “Pêra-Manca region” first mentioned in a letter from Évora Town Council to King João II in 1488 but the wines were also aboard Pedro Álvares Cabral’s ship when he discovered Brazil in 1500. The Pêra-Manca brand was first patented in the 1870s and the wines gathered international recognition when the reds won gold medals in Bordeaux soon after. Following many political changes in Portugal, the arrival of phylloxera and the death of the vineyard owner in 1920, the Pêra-Manca wines were not made again until 1990 when Cartuxa revived the Pêra-Manca label for its flagship wines.
