Luis Gomes 'Giz' Vinhas Velhas, 2016
Giz means chalk and refers to Bairrada’s poor, stony limestone terroir where Luis Gomes grows his centenary vineyards. This wine is made from 100% Baga, aged in French oak barrels for 20 months. Clear ruby colour. This red is very elegant with delicate floral notes and sweet aromas of red cherry and sloe berries. Mineral, structured and complex with a pronounced acidity which mellows once opened for a few hours balanced by sweet candied cherry.
A field blend from old vineyards (+70 Years) including indigenous grape varieties: Tinta Francisca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional. Half way through the fermentation process the juice is separated from the skins and racked to new 500 lt French oak barrels to finish the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Pale red cherry colour. Plenty of intensity on the nose, with a burst of fresh blueberries, wild berries, red currents and spices. Elegant on the palate, with velvety flavours of mint and crushed raspberries along with mineral tones ensuring a lingering and persistent finish.
Bojador Talha, 2018
A blend of Trincadeira (40%) Moreto (30%) and Tinta Grossa (30%), this organic wine is vinified in traditional clay jars ‘Talha’, the Portuguese equivalent of amphora. Bright mid cherry red. Packed with fragrant red cherry, plumb and earthy, dusty notes. Its grippy, fresh and juicy with a hint of savoury, chalky minerality. Intense but without weight.
