Mateus quits flask shape for new blends

31 January, 2014

Mateus is moving away from its distinctive flask-shaped bottle with the launch of a new dual varietal wine range.

Portugal’s biggest brand is set to launch four wines in the Mateus Expressions range: white Maria Gomes/Chardonnay and three rosé blends – Baga/Shiraz, Baga/Muscat and Aragonez/Zinfandel.

The wines are to retail for £7.99 and will be launched in the UK before rolling out around the world.

Anthony Habert, marketing manager at distributor Stevens Garnier, said: “Mateus is proud to be launching this year a range of four different bi-varietal white and rosé wines, which combine indigenous and international varieties, with the aim of providing consumers with the reassurance of a household brand name and the familiarity of international varietals in order to present wines from Portugal in a contemporary and relevant way.”

The wines are to be released at the Wines of Portugal annual tasting on March 5 at London’s Royal Horticultural Halls.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
