Casal de Ventoleza 'Pseudonimo' Pet Nat Minho, Portugal NV
Beyond creating the bubbles in a natural way, winemakers Fernando Moura and Pedro Campos are in the process of getting organic certification for their family estate. And, in the meantime, it is certified for "Integrated Production" which refers to a sustainable farming system that places emphasis on involving the entire vineyard as an ecosystem, the preservation and improvement of soil, and a diversified environment.
We get juicy ripe pear, meyer lemons, a dash of herbs, a touch of sea salt salinity, and the perfect amount of acidity from this hand-harvested blend of 80% Loureiro and 20% Trejadura (indigenous Portuguese grapes).
Food ideas: Smoke Trout (from Tracklements of course) with w/ lemon garlic chive pesto, pasta with roasted pears, feta cheese, and toasted pine nuts, Brie quesadilla with pear lemon ginger chutney, quinoa with carmelized rosemary tempeh, sauteed pears and toasted sesame seeds
