Winemaker's Notes

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. 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 can be seen in the region, including vines encircling vertical poles. The trademark fizz of Vinho Verdewines derives from the release of carbon dioxide during malolactic fermentation.

    A pleasant sparkling white with apple and citrus flavors. The effervescence offers a pleasant alternative to the usual white wines.

    Nearly water clear, showing a little foam as it was poured into the glass. An open-plus nose; a quite ripe apple/peach aroma with some jammy concentration, and lots of exotic floral overtones. Now I find some lime and spearmint. This is very good! Much of the same flavors show up in the taste, though not quite as complex and well defined. The peach jam/citrus combo is there, with a hint of the spearmint, and then some clean mineral comes out in the finish. Good. Light-medium body, smooth, dry, with modest acidity. - Wine & Spirits
