    Casa de Saima "Vinhas Velhas" Colheita Branco '19


    Casa de Saima "Vinhas Velhas" Colheita Branco '19

    Casa de Saima is one of our favorite traditional producers in the Atlantic-influenced, Bairrada region of Portugal. This is a small, family-run winery, founded in 1940 with 18 hectares of vineyards located on small plots of land.

    On April 30th of this past year, Graça Miranda tragically passed away. Her son and daughter, Diogo and Raquel, are carrying on her traditions and Saima will continue to be a source of great wines that represent the best of the region.

    The Bairrada region of Portugal is home to some of the most complex and best value white wine in all of Portugal. The wine featured this month is the Colheita Branco. "Vinhas Velhas" means "Old Vines" in Portuguese, and this is a blend of old-vine Bical, Maria Gomes and Cercial, all natives grapes to the region.

    It is fermented in tank with indigenous yeast and rest in tank before being bottled. Beautiful aromatics of citrus, mineral, and freshly shaved fennel. Light-bodied and dry with a long, complex finish. If you are a fan of Muscadet from the Loire Valley, this briny, complex white is something you must try. Year in and year out this is one of the best white wine values our store has to offer. Don’t miss it!
