Now, with the aim of attracting new consumers, as well as retaining loyal Mateus drinkers who recognise and trust the Mateus brand and portfolio, Mateus is launching something completely new: Mateus Expressions, a range of four wines which combine indigenous Portuguese and international varietals.

At a time when grape varieties are acquiring increasing focus and importance, Mateus has risen to the challenge of marrying the renowned profiles of international grape varieties with the complexity and originality of Portuguese varieties.

Mateus Aragonez and Zinfandel has a beautiful salmon-rosé colour and is a medium sweet wine with rich summer berries bouquet, a delicate fresh palate and a Fabulously Fruity finish. Finally, Mateus Maria Gomes and Chardonnay has a citrus hue and is a dry wine with bright aromas of tropical fruits with a round and Divinely Delicate finish.

Loyal to the spirit of the brand, these are wines for any occasion, as an aperitif or to accompany light meals, whenever one’s preference is for a light, relaxed and delicious choice.
