Pequenos Rebentos Alvarinho & Trajadura

16.00

A blend of Alvarinho and Trajadura (known as Albariño and Trexadura in Spain). Natural yeast is used and the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks.  A great summer wine, light and fresh perfect for sunny afternoons in the garden or with some fresh fish.

This wine is produced in the Vinho Verde DOC, northwest Portugal, it is the largest wine producing area in Portugal and is very influenced by its proximity to the sea.

“Márcio Lopez studied as an engineer, but cut his winemaking teeth working for two years with Vinho Verde master Anselmo Mendes in Melgaço. He then traveled to Australia where he made wine in Rutherglen and Tasmania, another cool climate region. He returned to Portugal in 2010 to start his own projects, including Pequenos Rebentos in Vinho Verde. He initially started working with Alvarinho and Trajadura (known as Albariño and Treixadura in Spain) from the sub-regions of Monção and Melgaço. These areas have a very particular microclimate, with slightly less Atlantic influence than the rest of the region – winters are cold with moderate rainfall and summers are hot and dry.

During 2016 he also started to grow and vinify local varietals Loureiro, from Ponte de Lima, and Avesso from Amarante. He now farms 5ha of vineyards, planted on granite, as well as buying some grapes from selected growers who also work in the same sustainable way and without herbicides.

His winemaking is low intervention, he ferments using natural yeasts” – Indigo Wine
