Alvarinho & Avesso

Intense color, almost golden.

On the nose shows pear, melon, and citrus, demonstrating later pineapple, passion fruit (lightly) and some notes of hazelnut.

Serious in the mouth, with a soft texture, freshness and some salinity.

Long finish.

Grapes: Alvarinho, Avesso.

Colheita Selecionada

Citric color. Pronounced in the aroma, where it stands out lime and lemon, followed by notes of linden, prince herb and green apple.

Crispy in the mouth, faithful to the region’s profile in terms of lightness and freshness, but in a modern wine perspective with a good compromise between residual sugar and acidity.

Very slight effervescence, just to emphasize freshness.

Grapes: Loureiro, Arinto, Azal, Avesso.

Harvest: 2021

Bottles: 5000

Rosé

Pink wine with some intensity in the color. On the nose, aromas of sweet red fruit, like strawberry and currant, and floral notes of pink oleander.

Easy to drink and offers gastronomic aptitude thanks to the good acidity and body that is not too light.

Grapes: Espadeiro.

Harvest: 2020

Bottles: 2600

Red Vinho Verde aged 24 months in new French oak barrel and bottled without addition of CO2.

Medium-body wine with soft tannins: oaky, earthy with lots of spices. As it starts to open you feel more of the dark fruits and dark chocolate.

If open now, the wine needs should be decanted, although not strictly necessary.

Wine that easily will age well and evolve for at least 10 years after the harvest date.

WANTED
- The Captain

WANTED by Sapateiro Boutique Winery is a series of wines that I decided to make that don’t necessarily represent the region where I am in.

The concept behind the labels is inspired by the old west WANTED posters, but instead of cowboys, this time we have a pirate crew stealing wines. Their treasures? Stealing wines. 

Each person on the crew will have his own wine and label. For now, I am releasing the first two wines.

This wine in particular was a wine that I decided to make spontaneously on a Sunday. Usually, these grapes are harvested to be blended with our other reds, but in 2020, I decided to let them ripen a bit longer and harvest them separately.

The result is this wine: a monovarietal of Touriga Nacional grape variety, aged 16 months in a new oak french barrel and 8 months in the bottle, of which we only made around 250 bottles.

Grapes: Touriga Nacional

Harvest: 2020

Bottles: 287

WANTED by Sapateiro Boutique Winery is a series of wines that I decided to make that don’t necessarily represent the region where I am in.

The concept behind the labels is a pirate crew that steals wines – those are their treasures. Each person on the crew will have his own wine. For now, I am releasing the first two wines.

This wine in particular was a wine that I made with two newly planted varieties in our vineyard and with a little bit of my favorite from the region. The varieties are: Moscatel Galego, Gewurztraminer, and Avesso – this latter in particular was aged in oak, while the first two weren’t.

The result is this wine: an exuberant white wine, delicate and fresh, which we made 549 bottles.

Grapes: Moscatel Galego, Gewurztraminer, Avesso.

Harvest: 2021

Bottles: 549
