Fernão Pires is one of the most widely used Portuguese white grape varietals in the country, its versatility, precocity and richness of aromatic compounds are what make it so popular.
After the Moscatel de Setubal, it is the most widely planted grape in the Setubal Peninsula.
It is used in single-varietal wines and blends, having good results in the production of sparkling, fortified, as well as late harvest wines.
Its aromatic profile exhibits tropical fruit, lemon, lime, orange, tilia, rose and other lemony herbs.
This land-locked grape grows in a long north-south strip over by the border with Spain.
It has various alternative regional names. Síria is the name used in the Beiras, but it is best known by its southern Alentejo name, Roupeiro - this is the most-planted white grape in the Alentejo. Because it has a tendency to oxidise, Síria/Roupeiro is a wine to drink young, in its youth it is exuberantly aromatic, citrus and floral, with hints of peach, melon and bay.
It does better in the cool uplands of the Beiras than in the heat of the Ribatejo and Alentejo, and is particularly successful in the Pinhel region in the northern sector of the Beira Interior.
Siria/Roupeiro it’s also a very well adapted grape variety to the Setubal Peninsula.
The Síria gives high yields, and both bunches and grapes are small.
It’s environmentally conscious, good value, stylish, carefully sourced, delicious, and banishes the question: “Is it worth opening a bottle?”
The main advantage to bag-in-a-box packaging is that it prevents oxidation of the wine during dispensing.
After opening, wine in a bottle it is oxidized by air in the bottle which has displaced the wine poured; wine in a bag is not touched by air and thus not subject to oxidation until it is dispensed.
Cask wine is not subject to cork taint or spoilage due to slow consumption after opening.
Very good solution not only for having it at home but also for restaurants and bars that serve wine by glass.
