The Grapes

Espadeiro is grown in the Vinhos Verdes region, where the wine produced by this grape variety is much appreciated.
It may have other names, according to the place where it is cultivated: Espadão, Espadal, etc.
This grape variety is very productive and has big compact bunches made up of medium-sized, uniform berries.
Wines produced with Espadeiro are acidulous and light pink or slightly ruby (when subject to prolonged fermentation on skins). Some cellars produce rosé wine from this grape variety.

Vinho Verde wines are citrus or straw-colored with rich, fruity and floral aromas, depending on the grapes that are used. They have a balanced palate, and are intense and very refreshing.

Enjoy…
