This is the debut TAIFA white, Taking its name from the small principalities and kingdoms created in the Iberian Peninsula during the Moorish period, Taifa is crafted with exceptional precision and quality, honouring the unique terroir that produced it. This wine embodies the freshness, elegance and balance that derives from the vineyard’s altitude, and raises the bar of the fine white wine offering that Fonte Souto is so well placed to deliver. With Taifa, pursuing even more selective harvesting, favoring specific, mature vineyard plots and bring picking forward to ensure higher acidity. A portion of the wine is vinified in new French oak barrels, enhancing structure and a sense of volume. Made using only the very finest white grapes from Quinta da Fonte Souto, Taifa reveals incredible freshness and complexity, reflecting its proximity to the São Mamede mountain range. 


Seductive and charming honeysuckle perfume, complemented by a fresh sea spray, saline fragrance, and subtle oaky vanilla notes. Some flinty, smoky character adds a further dimension to the sumptuous aromatic range. The rich texture delivers creamy flavors of apricot and quince with some delicate traces of honey, all exquisitely balanced by a streak of citrus acidity that underscores the wine’s sublime elegance and poise. The depth and sophistication hold the promise of additional refinement from continued bottle-aging.


The hand-picked grapes are placed in small, shallow boxes and taken to the on-site winery. Manual sorting is followed by destemming and gentle crushing.
