Vinhos Borges (Vinho Verde)
Product not available in United States
The Portuguese company Vinhos Borges was founded in 1884 by António and Francisco Borges. These two brothers set the foundation for what would continue to be, even centuries later, a company known for its excellent wines as well as its commitment to quality. In their portfolio of wines can be found the Gatão brand. The name originally came from the village of the same name, from where the grapes for the brand were sourced. Over time, due to the brand's increasing popularity, grapes began to be sourced from all over Portugal.
As a result, Gatão now has nothing to do with the village and simply means "big cat". This is further emphasized by the stylish cat on the beautiful minimalist bottle. To make Gatão Rosé, a collection of the traditional varieties of Portuguese grapes are harvested and brought to the distillery from all over Portugal. This young wine is matured for a minimum of two months before bottling. It is meant to be drunk young and chilled.
The perfect table wine, Gatão Rosé is a beautiful, transparent pink. It is slightly fizzy with a young, fruity smell. The delicate flavour of this medium-bodied wine is the perfect accompaniment for lighter dishes such as lean meat, pizza, pasta, and appetizers.
