    Winemaker Notes

    Raspberry pink in color, with a slight prickle of fizz that emphasises its bouquet of red fruits (strawberries) and tropical fruits (banana). It the mouth it is lively and fresh, intense in flavor and well balanced, the overall impression being of lightness and freshness, with an elegant finish.

    A fresh, semi-sparkling wine, displaying the best qualities of the Vinho Verde region in northwest Portugal. With a lush green landscape, Vinho Verde may literally mean “green wine” but it translates to “young wine.” Gazela is indeed meant to be drunk young, and is an extremely versatile pairing for all types of cuisine.

    Blend: 35% Borracal, 30% Espadeiro, 30% Amaral, 5% Vinhao

    Gazela, Portugal
    Gazela Winemaker António Braga Winery Image

    Nestled in the northwest corner of the country, Vinho Verdes is one of the oldest wine regions in Portugal and translates directly to “green wine,” though not because of the color—it means “green” as in “young.” Given its freshness, Gazela is a wine that is best enjoyed young. Vinho Verde, and Gazela, in particular are suited to the younger wine consumers looking for light and refreshing wines for uncomplicated drinking occasions.

     António Braga is the Enological Director at Sogrape Vinhos. Driven by curiosity and a desire to experience foreign climates, he started his winemaking career in 2003, with harvests in Portugal, California, Argentina, Chile and New Zealand.

    At Sogrape since 2007, he originally assumed a winemaking role at Quinta da Leda. There, in the Douro Superior, Antonio oversaw 10 harvests and made an invaluable contribution as the ‘right hand man’ to Luis Sottomayor, amplifying the portfolio and prestige of Sogrape’s Douro wine brands.

    In recognition of his excellent work, new and greater responsibilities naturally followed and in March 2017, António Braga took responsibility for some of Sogrape Vinhos regions (Vinhos Verdes, Dão, Bairrada and Lisbon), monitoring a new winemaking team.

    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.

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
