Fernão Pires is a white Portuguese wine grape grown throughout Portugal but most notable in the Tejo (just north-east of Lisbon) and Bairrada (about 50miles south of Porto) where it is also known as "Maria Gomes".
This variety is known to produce wines with a spicy aromatic character, though often with delicate exotic fruity notes. Generally not expected to be a long-living wine, this wine is best drunk in its infancy or matured for up to 2 or 3 years.
