Azamor uses a mixture of local varieties, such as Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, as well as international ones such as Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot, to produce bold yet elegant red wines that are packed with juicy fruit and ripe tannins. Alison and Joaquin Luiz Gomes bought the Azamor estate in 1998 and planted their first vineyard in 2001. Known as the “bread basket” of Portugal, the Alentejo has staked a claim as one of the country’s most important red wine regions and is renowned for its consistency of good quality, excellent value, fruit driven wines. David Baverstock, an Australian who has lived in Portugal for 30 years, consults on the winemaking. Relatively far south, the Alentejo climate is known for its dry, hot summers, when the temperature can easily rise to 40-45°C. Azamor’s 27 hectares of vineyards, however, are the most densely planted in the region and lie at 350m above sea level on low vigour, clay and schist slopes. The resulting wines have an elegance, concentration and depth of flavour that is rare in the region. Portuguese wines are the most varied and made from a large array of grape varieties virtually not produced anywhere else in the world.
