Azamor

Alentejo, alentejo Portugal

Alison and Joaquim Luiz Gomes bought the Azamor estate in 1998 and planted their first vineyard in 2001. Known as the bread basket of Portugal, the Alentejo has staked a claim as one of the country’s most important red wine regions and is renowned for its fruit-driven wines of consistent quality and excellent value.

Situated relatively far south, the Alentejo is known for its dry, hot summers, when the temperature can often rise to 45°C. However, Azamor’s 27 hectares of vineyard benefit from the cooling influence of altitude. Lying at 350 metres above sea level on low vigour, clay and schist slopes, these are some of the most densely planted vineyards in the region and produce low yields of very concentrated fruit. The resulting wines have great elegance, concentration and depth of flavour.

Azamor uses a mixture of indigenous Portuguese varieties (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Trincadeira) and international varieties (Syrah, Alicante Bouschet, Petit Verdot and Merlot) in the Vinho Regional Alentejano blend to produce a bold yet refined red, packed with juicy fruit and ripe tannins. The 100% Petit Verdot is well structured with intense black fruit flavours and a subtle smoky character from 12 months ageing in French oak, 35% of which is new. Made using grapes from the best plots on the vineyard, the ‘Selected Vines’ is an intriguing blend of Syrah, Touriga Franca and Alicante Bouchet, aged for 12 months in a mixture of French and American oak. This is a stunning wine from the Alentejo, with vibrant fruit and velvety tannins.
