    COZs de Montexuntos "vp-Vital" '17


    COZs de Montexuntos "vp-Vital" '17

    COZs is a partnership between two friends, who just happen to be two of Portugal's best winemakers. Tiago Teles (Tiago Teles Wines) and António Marques de la Cruz (Quinta da Serradinha) formed this partnership in 2015, when at the time they were able to rent and restore a spectacular vineyard just a few kilometers away from the Atlantic Ocean near Figueira de Foz. Tiago had long been a fan of Quinta dos Cozinheiros, and even though the vineyard wasn't in a well-known region, he felt the singularity of the place was so important that he and António began producing two wines, c1 and c2 from the Cozinheiros vineyard. Serra de Montejunto, a gorgeous, forested limestone mount range approximately an hour drive north of Lisbon, was the next place for Tiago and António to discover. They bought a 2 hectare parcel, planted to the rare varietal Vital, in which they farm organically. This is only the second wine in Portugal made entirely from this varietal. "vp" stands for Vinha da Pena, the name given to the single vineyard. The grapes were harvested in Vinha da Pena over a two day period, afterwards being pressed and fermented in stainless steel tank without temperature control. The wine spent 10 months on it lees in old barrels before being bottled. This is the exciting debut release for this wine. Sold out in Portugal, it was recognized as one of the 10 best wines of Portugal by Revista de Vinho (Portugal's version of Wine Spectator). Gorgeous aromatics, with notes of spiced pear, apple and mineral. On the palate, it has weight, but still plenty of bright acidity, and lingering mineral notes. This is a wine full of personality and complexity, and while its earth driven style may challenge some, we think it will be beloved by most. Fans of Tiago and António's must not miss this wine. It is truly incredible!
