    Winemaker Notes

    Quinta da Lixa's Aromas das Castas white wine is a harmonious blend of Alvarinho and Trajadura grape from Portugal's Vinho Verde sub-region of Moncao and Melgaco. The Alvarinho grape variety is one of the least productive in the world. Look for hints of stone fruits such as peaches. This variety also has notes of orange blossom, giving elegance and complexity to the whole. The Trajadura grape variety enhances the body and long finish, with fruity hints of pear. The perfect combination of two of the noblest grape varieties in the Vinho Verde Region.

    Quinta da Lixa, Portugal
    Quinta da Lixa – Soc. Agrícola, Lda. is a living testament to the passion that the Meireles family has always had for Vinho Verde. Active in several areas in the business world, this family, who already owned vineyards next to the small Vila da Lixa, decided in 1986 to create a small business, Soporvin-Sociedade Portuguesa de Vinhos.

    Winemaker Carlos Teixeira produces some of the best values in the region with grapes from their 35ha vineyards and a selection of premium varietals like Loureiro, Trajadura, Alvarinho and Touriga Nacional.

    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.
