Clean, crisp style with bracing grapefruit, citrus oil and white peach flavours to the fore, and cool touches of sparkly minerals and lime brought to life by the wines gentle pétillant. Bright, invigorating and thirst quenching. Nortico is grown and made on the south bank of the Minho River, from plots so small they are known as ‘jardins’ – ‘gardens’ in Portuguese. The local soils are classic granite and schist and, while the climate is fairly warm, the region is soaked by a whopping 2,000ml of rain annually – even Ireland gets less than this! Unlike many other Minho wines, Nortico has no added Carbon Dioxide – its slight spritz is totally natural.
Beautiful pre-dinner tonic or serve with fresh seafood or roast chicken.
