Portugal`s northern Atlantic coastal region of Minho shares much in common with it`s northern Spanish neighbour, Galicia.The Minho is a verdant green coastal region, often shrouded in mist, where the grey granite soils support a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and various localized grape varieties.
Quinta de Gomariz only started making wines in 2005 and employs the region’s leading winemaker Antonio Sousa. Within a few years Gomariz has won ‘Best Wine 2009’ against all other Vinho Verde producers at the Vinhos Verdes Regional Contest.
Using a number of local grape varieties including Loureiro, Alvarinho, Avesso and Vinhao, the Quinta has become the foremost estate producer in the Minho with a modern range of expressive varietal Vinho Verde wines.
An intense purple colour, fresh, youthful red fruits dominate the bouquet and rich mouthfilling prune and cherry flavours create a complex palate. The finish balances vibrant cherry stone fruits, soft tannins and hints of the granite mineral terroir.
