    Winemaker Notes

    Like Pinot Grigio? You'll love Gazela. Light fresh and slightly bubbly wine from Portugal. Gazela Vinho Verde is well-balanced with vibrant citrus, green apple and lemongrass flavors and a subtle effervescence. A fresh, approachable and unstuffy Vinho Verde.

    Blend: 40% Loureiro, 30% Pedernã, 15% Trajadura, 15% Azal

    Gazela, Portugal

    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 wine consumers looking for a light and refreshing wine for uncomplicated drinking occasions.

    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.
