Sem igual, or “without equal,” is a project of husband and wife João and Leila Camizao. They sustainably grow grape varieties indigenous to their corner of northern Portugal, and the wines that result display a distinctiveness that separates them from many other producers in their region. This is a vinho verde that, at least in our recent experience, has no equal. Made from 70% arinto and 30% azal, the wine ferments and ages on the lees in stainless steel. Leila and João only release their bottles once they feel the wine has aged sufficiently. In addition to the bright citrus and floral aromas that vinho verde is known for, there is also an assertiveness and definitive minerality that will catch your attention. Sustainably grown, organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine.
