Broadbent Vinho Verde
Michael Broadbent was a renowned wine writer and pining for some of the great Portuguese wines in England, which was the beginning of his import business sixty years ago. The Vinho Verde is made to the Broadbent specifications making it typical of true Vinho Verde.
Vinho Verde, Portugal’s largest wine region,stretches from the Spanish border to south of Oporto. The soils are acid-rich and granite-based, with areas of schist or slate and clay. The slopes tend to be gentle in Vinho Verde, though some vineyards are planted on steep or terraced slopes. The region gets 1,500 mm (59 inches) of annual rainfall, which makes vinegrowing a challenge.
Owing to this, many unorthodox growing techniques canbe seen in the region, including vines encircling vertical poles. The trademark fizz of Vinho Verde wines derives from the release of carbon dioxide during malolactic fermentation.
Fresh and spritzy shows zesty aromas of blood orange and peach with flavors of green apple, citrus and minerals. Light and spicy finish. Grapes are Loureiro, Trajadura and Pedernã.
