Pirata Da Viuva, Adega Viúva Gomes

£39.00

The Colares region, west of Lisbon and facing the atlantic, is known as the Westernmost vineyard in Europe. There, the sandy soil protected the vines from Phylloxera, and it isn't rare to find some dating back the 19th century. The reds produced there age for 5 or 10 years in barrels before bottling, and usually take years or even decades to fully develop and reveal themselves. The wait is all very worth it though. The remaining vineyard are all shared between a handful of producers. 

Adega Viúva Gomes Colares was established in 1808. Their Pirata project of natural wines takes a completely opposite road, making wines ready to drink young and without any oak or additions. A new expression of the Colares terroir, with the hope to bring the attention back onto the once thriving wine scene of Sintra.
