2004 Adega Regional de Colares Arenae Colares (500ml)

SKU #1081008

Colares is an unusual growing region to say the least. Most people, even those who know something about Portuguese wine, know very little about the wines of this region. Perhaps the most interesting fact about Colares is that the indigenous Ramisco vines are pre-phylloxera and on their original root stock. Vineyards are located in sandy clay soil in the very windy, foggy atlantic climate close to Lisbon. Taste this wine and you will find the incredibly intense, pure red fruit flavors and fine overall balance to be arguably as compelling asthe quality of the ancient vines in this region. High in both acidity and tannin, these are wines for the long haul. Very cool stuff for those looking for all things obscure and traditional.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Do area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
