Vértice by Cavas Transmontanas
Caves Transmontanas prides itself on the production of premium sparkling wines. The winery located outside the small town of Alijó, more precisely in Cimo Corgo, started in the 80’s, with an ambitious goal of producing superior sparkling wine in the Douro region, using the classical champagne method. Today, Caves Transmontanas produces six different sparkling wines and two still wines and annually produces around 100,000 bottles of sparkling and still wines.
2006 Vértice Pinot Noir Espumante Bruto DOC Douro
As single variety sparkling, light pink in color, with a very thin and elegant bubble, the Vértice Pinot Noir gives a fresh palate with invigorating acidity that leaves a fine and prolonged flavor. More complex in the mouth with a full body, a hint of oxidation and fine persistence, this sparkling drinks beautifully. Focused, crisp and intense, its structure is simply impressive, with grip and that nice acidity on the finish. Aged 8 years sur lies prior to disgorgement.
