K&L Notes

Produced from 9 hectares of vines (at the time, half of the D.O.'s total plantation) purchased from the local land preservation society, this is a fantastic, dry, creamy, white-fruited Malvasia-based wine from the smallest D.O. in Portugal, located right on the coast, where vines are literally planted in holes dug into the sand down to the point where clay subsoil is reached. Given the damp, harsh conditions, which make it difficult to grow and properly ripen grapes (even red wines here often barely reach 12% abv), coupled with the temptation of developing expensive coastal real estate, Colares was at one point in danger of becoming a footnote in the Portuguese wine story. Now, the region enjoys some fame and is a popular feature story in many wine publications.
