Quinta de Gomariz, Vinho Verde

 

 

A young vineyard just nine years old, Quinta de Gomariz is a  27 Hectare estate with 17 Ha (43 acre) under vine located near Santo Tirso in the Rio Ave sub region of Vinho Verde.  The wines are characterised by their purity, elegance and lightness of touch, whilst maintaining crisp acidity, minerality and finesse.  Beautifully balanced they are powerful and intense without being weighty.

Alvarinho, Loureiro, Avesso, Azal, Trajadura, Padeiro, Espadeiro and the iconic Vinhao (red tenturier varietal) are all planted.

These wines are represented by Symposium wines in Norway; the wine is available in the UK from Ellis of Richmond.  Distribution is sought in the Irish market.

 

The white wines

Quinta de Gomariz , Alvarinho
- flinty with red apple, quince and stone fruit aromas; mineral notes on the palate, with a long finish

Quinta de Gomariz , Loureiro - now in screwcap
- dry, crisp, notes of citrus fuits, with some flowery aromas

Quinta de Gomariz , Avesso
- clean, floral.

Quinta de Gomariz , Grande Escolha
this 'grand selection' is from Alvarinho and Trajadura.  A deeper and much riper 'maduro' style, with more weight in the mouth.  Elegant and long

Rosé wines

Quinta de Gomariz , Padeiro rosé
bright pink wine with a flavour of red fruits, balanced with fresh acidity

Quinta de Gomariz , Espadeiro rosé
salmon pink, fresh acidity and wildflower aromas

Red wine

Quinta de Gomariz , Vinhao
vigorous acidity, inky purple in colour, a real speciality, and not for the faint-hearted!
