Vinhos Imperfeitos … White 2018

105,40 €

This wine is born in acknowledgment of the unique characteristics of Vinhos Verdes region for the creation of world-class wines and a unique relationship between Dirk Niepoort and Carlos Raposo. Due to this relationship and after many wine experimentation in the region, Carlos managed to vinify the wine he idealized. Believing in Nature, a great wine is born only if the winemaker fully respects his grapes, interfering as little as...

From an early age Carlos Raposo realized his connection with nature, for that reason at the age of 16 he followed oenology and viticulture at the CVR Bairrada School. At the age of 20, he left for France, where he studied for seven years in Bordeaux and Burgundy. He obtained a degree in Viticulture from the University of Burgundy and a master’s degree in oenology from the University of Bordeaux.

During his studies, he worked at the Château Smith Haut Lafitte and Château Malescot Saint Exupery in Margaux. After that, he looked for other experiences and worked at the Quinta Sardonia in Ribera del Duero (Spain), Robert Craig in Napa Valley (USA) and Stuart Wines Company in Heathcote (Australia).

In 2011, at the age of 27, he returned to Portugal, where he started working with Dirk Niepoort. Though young, his experience around the world, passion and dedication made him the key man of Dirk, at Quinta de Nápoles in the Douro region. He worked hard to sculpt delicious wines like the Batuta, elegant as the Coche, with character as Robustus and Redoma. But also the Turris and all the other projects he has grabbed, from Dão to Vinhos Verdes. Carlos partially left Niepoort in mid-2018, continuing to work with Dirk in the Vinhos Verdes project.

In 2018, he returned to the origins, creating its own project called Imperfect Wines. Carlos is from the Dão region, knows very well the potential of the region and has long dreamed up the wines he wants to make there:

I love fresh, mineral, complex, deep whites and red wines with a hint of rusticity, forest and spices. I believe that the region of Dão is perfect for this type of wine, always thinking about the potential of aging, of whites and reds made by Eng. Cardoso de Vilhena in the Dão study center, a world reference, at the level of the best nectars of our world, very close to heaven … yes that’s what I want to do!
