João’s Camaleão (that is, ‘Chameleon’ after the super-camouflaged reptiles that can be found in the vineyards during the summer months) brand uses minimal winemaking intervention philosophy to help reflect the authenticity of each grape variety/terroir. The label for João’s Camaleao Alvarinho has a suitably chameleonic illustration which changes colour from green to blue when the wine reaches the ideal service temperature. Nifty, that.


Tasting Notes

I indulged in a glass (okay bottle) over the weekend and not only was it blessed relief in the hot weather, but it was also hugely versatile. We had a barbecue with friends and grilled a whole host of dishes to sate the crowds; asparagus, aubergine, trout and pork skewers and it went brilliantly with everything. The perfect gastronauts tipple! Camaleão Alvarinho was made with 100% premium Alvarinho grapes selected from three separate parcels. This alvarinho gets its structure from Baião, freshness from Felgueiras and aroma of Amarante in a combination of terroirs that result in a vivid wine.
