    Winemaker Notes

    Clear and bright with young greenish tones. An expansive aroma, with notes of ripe mango, nectarine and hints of well-ripened citrus fruit. This fruitiness is also present on the palate, alongside a balanced acidity that provides great freshness, as well as balance. This wine has a harmonious, fruity finish. The profile of this wine allows for immediate consumption, but it will evolve positively in the bottle for at least 3 years. The profile of this wine makes it an ideal accompaniment for fish dishes, fresh salads and seafood. It is also a wonderful aperitif. Its freshness makes it very suitable for drinking outside of mealtimes.

    Azevedo, Portugal

    The estate of Quinta de Azevedo has one of the most magnificent Portuguese manors dating back to the eleventh century. Located in the Barcelos commune, a top quality area for white wine production, the estate underwent years of meticulous restoration which included the renovation and decoration of the Manor, and the re-planting of native grape varieties (especially Loureiro and Pedernã) across 84 acres (34 hectares).

    The winery is one of the most modern in the Vinho Verde region capable of producing the highest quality white wines and employing the most up-to date technologies for planting, cultivation, and sustainability.

    A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. The ‘green’ in the name refers to the youthful state in which the wines are customarily released and consumed, not the color of the wine.

    It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto). Following initial alcoholic fermentation, a natural, secondary malolactic conversion in cask produces carbon dioxide, giving Vinho Verde its charmingly light sparkle.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended white wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used in white wine blends, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied white wine blend, like Chardonnay, would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
