This is a fantastic field blend from Antonio Madeira in the Serra da Estrela sub-region in the Dão. Primarily Alfrocheiro and Touriga Nacional, with several other indigenous varieties that are co-planted on rugged granitic soils. Aging is for 18 months, in old French barrels and 3 months in stainless steel before bottling. The wine is vibrant and balanced, with subtle tannin, and some real material. Though there are some white grapes in the blend, it looks and acts like a red wine, and would be perfect with anything from the grill this summer! Feel free to chill for 15-20 minutes to give it a little extra freshness on the palate.
The Phaunus "orange" is all Loureiro, with 8 weeks of skin contact and lees aging in 1,300L clay Talha amphorae from southern Portugal. The wine has nice lift from the natural acidity of the Loureiro grapes, while the maceration and lees aging give it texture and structure. As winemaker Miguel Viseu says, it's a wine "made in silence," with harvest by hand in the early morning, and no electricity used at any point in the process. A truly curious approach with a delicious result. Drink chilled, but not too cold. Eben Lillie
Winemaker Tiago Sampaio spent some time in Oregon, working in vineyards and studying oenology. Here, he developed a love for Pinot Noir, and upon his return to Portugal, he planted some Pinot Noir in his high altitude vineyards. This is a Pet Nat (Petillant Naturel aka Methode Ancestrale) from Tiago's Pinot Noir vines. It's a beautiful pale pink color in the glass, not overly aromatic, and delicate on the palate. A welcome addition to our sparkling wine section! P.S. Uivo Pet Nat Rose was recently featured in the New York Times 20 under 20! EL
