Bucelas

Bucelas or Bucellas is a name often found on 19th-century decanter and bin labels in Britain, showing just how popular this 'Portuguese hock' was then. The wine is a potentially scented dry white based on Arinto grapes. It is made in relatively small quantity but some newish producers are trying hard, perhaps encouraged by the proximity of the capital Lisbon, and its thirsty populace.
