Quinta da Gaivosa Lordelo

70cl

Quinta da Gaivosa's Lordelo is an amazing composition of 30 indigenous grapes field-blended (including rarities such as “Malvasia Preta”). At over 100 years old the vines have an amazingly low yield (an average of one tiny 200 g cluster per grapevine). Most winemakers would rationally decide to replant the entire vineyard. But there’s nothing rational about a vineyard like Lordelo. There’s emotion, history, legacy and a unique character that the Alves de Sousa family is truthfully pleased to share.
