Vinho Branco "Celestino" 2018 $20 This is 100% Muscat Petite Grains from an uncertified organic vineyard in Douro, northern Portugal, planted on 600m up on black schist soil. The grapes are whole cluster, 50% crushed right away and the other 50% are left to macerate untouched for 3 months, then everything is combined and aged in steel befor getting bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur added. Aromatic, fresh and light on its feet for an orange wine with some tropical notes, spice and bright minerality on a lean, dry finish.
Vide 2016 $23 This is a blend of red and white grapes: Trincadeira, Tinta Francesa, Tinta de Olho Branco,Fernão Pires and probably a few others from a 65 year old vineyard 550m up in the mountains near Portalegre, all hand harvested and wild fermented whole cluster in steel, then pressed off to old barrel for a year before getting bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur added. Inspired by Vitor's love of the light reds of Jura. There is a weightless quality to this wine with crunchy red berry fruit and savory wild herbs with a silky finish. Totally unique and delicious.
