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.

Clear, citrus yellow color. Aroma to white fruits with floral notes in a complex, fresh and subtle. Good volume of mouth, fresh with good acidity and nice finish

Hugely versatile, it will pair well with many dishes but its best partner is warm weather. 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.
