1969 Adega Viúva Gomes Colares

SKU #1317448

Colares is a small DOC on the the coast, northwest of Lisbon. It is one of Portugal's most ancient areas and is entirely planted on sand. Their vines are all original, ungrafted, and very old. The red grape in Colares is called Ramisco, which is grown nowhere else, and this Ramisco red wine from Viuva Gomes is rare and remarkable. From the sandy soils of Colares, Portugal, comes this light, delicate, spicy, and elegant wine. Its high acidity and aggressive tannins help Ramisco wines to mature beautifully (as we hope you will experience first hand with this extremely rare 1969 bottling!), developing fine aromatic and flavor complexity. Ramisco wines are unique and rare: Phylloxera survivor before, in danger of extinction now. There are only three producers of this wine in this part of the world and the cultivated land is not larger than 50 acres.

Other Red Wines



- 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 Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
