Winemaker Notes

Crisp and refreshing with intense flavors of citrus, mineral and a touch of melon, with apple and floral notes. This also has the trademark little spritz on the palate that is so characteristic of Vinho Verdes, but in flavor and complexity it is definitely a step or two above most of the inexpensive wines coming out of the region.

Wine & Spirits
Located in Basto, an inland district of Vinho Verde, this 100-acre vineyard produced a concentrated arinto in 2014. Its tart fruit has the bright green glow of chlorophyll, carrying through the juicy texture and lasting with spice. A juicy white to chill for any roast fish.

Quinta da Raza, Portugal
Located inland in the verdant Vinho Verde region, Quinta da Raza is the home and life of Jose Diogo and Mafalda Teixeira Coelho. Quinta da Raza has a unique terroir created by the gentle slopes and magnificent exposure to the sun. The soil benefits from its granite origins with areas of schist and clay. It has a microclimate created by the mountains in the west and the valley of the Tamega river which prevents the influence of the Atlantic winds. The valley creates a shelter resulting in less rain and a greater temperature range. The vineyards are subject to more sun than perhaps other vineyards in the Vinho Verde Region, which are important factors for the development of the vines. Moreover, the average altitude of Quinta da Raza is 820 feet, which corresponds to the best average altitude suited for growing grapes.

Best known for intense, impressive and age-worthy fortified wines, Portugal relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to its north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean on its west and south coasts, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, due to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. A long and narrow but small country, Portugal claims considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast.

While Port (named after its city of Oporto on the Atlantic Coast at the end of the Douro Valley), made Portugal famous, Portugal is also an excellent source of dry red and white Portuguese wines of various styles.

The Douro Valley produces full-bodied and concentrated dry red Portuguese wines made from the same set of grape varieties used for Port, which include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo), Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão, among a long list of others in minor proportions.

Other dry Portuguese wines include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde white wine, made in the north, and the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão as well as the bold, and fruit-driven reds and whites of the southern, Alentejo.

The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast.
