In Portuguese, "gota" means a drop. Portugal is writing a new chapter in its wine history, marrying rich tradition with modern thinking to produce fresh, flavoursome wines from its vast array of distinctive, characterful grape varieties. Gota has created a range of signature wines from different wine regions. Each wine displays the character of the regional climate, soils and most important, the indigenous Portuguese varieties.

2018 Azahar DOC Vinho Verde
35% Loureiro, 25% Pedernã (Arinto), 25% Trajadura & 15% Azal
The first producer in Vinho Verde with denomination ATLANTIC COAST VINEYARD WINE
Vinho Verde is clearly unique in the world. From the ever-green region, where the temperatures are never too high, rainfall on the 1500mm average and high humidity. This wine comes from vineyards 15km close to Atlantic; those conditions create acidic but subtle, fresh and fruity wines, and Azahar is the perfect example of what the region is capable of.
“Vibrant yellow color and hints of gold. A becoming note of maturity is developing in the wine, showing a NV-Champagne-like nose as well as a lager-like, yeasty quality. This is a richer style of Vinho Verde. It has an exotic tinge to it with some attractive oxidation and very nice concentration” – Wine Enthusiast.
