Description

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – Mark Squires: “The future is very bright here. This looks like it will be one of the region’s regular stars.

Sem Igual” which translated from the Portuguese means “without equal” may sound arrogant but Joao Camizão is anything but, presenting his wines with a humble passion.
Coming from a long line of Vignerons but initially choosing a different path in Internet Technology, Joao has been irresistibly drawn back into the world of wines which runs through his blood, creating a Vinho Verde that truly is like no other.

From 10 hectares of vineyards in the subregion of Vale do Sousa, Meinedo Lousada near Porto, Joao and his superstar winemaker Jorge Sousa Pinto, have crafted a Vinho Verde that is definitely not the traditional style of extremely young/fizzy plonk known to many. Made with the local grapes of Arinto and Azal, 100% stainless steel fermentation and aging (8 months), Sem Igual is a wine of persistence and elegant acidity that demands time in the bottle (at least two years) to bring out its true characteristics, at which point the wine speaks out for itself.

We are also very pleased to offer in limited quantities, the Sem Mal 2018, a true winemakers wine.
Sem Mal is bottled just 10 days after fermentation with malolactic fermentation taking place in the bottle, producing a full bodied unique style with needle high acidity and intriguing after-notes.
