Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) The Broadbent name has been synonymous with fine wine for more than six decades, beginning with the renowned career of British wine critic,writer and auctioneer Michael Broadbent and continuing with his son, the importer Bartholomew Broadbent. Bartholomew’s deep roots in Portugal inspired him to create his own range of Ports, Madeiras and table wines. Broadbent’s vision was to produce the most reliable and traditional of all Vinho Verdes and to resolve the usual whine that Vinho Verde never tastes like it tastes in Portugal. The solution was twofold: to partner with a winery that had consistent production, and to ship the wines in refrigerated containers. The latter enable the wine to taste as fresh and spritzy as it would ever taste in Portugal, and since its launch in 2005, Broadbent Vinho Verde has rapidly earned the reputation as one of the finest Vinho Verdes.

Winemaker's Notes

Vinho Verde, Portugal’s largest wine re- gion, stretches from the Spanish border to south of Oporto. The soils are acid-rich and granite-based, with ar- eas 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 re- gion gets 1,500 mm (59 inches) of annual rainfall, which makes vinegrowing a challenge. Owing to this, many unorthodox growing techniques can be 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.
