Notes:

Paraiso Natural translates to Natural Paradise. This is the only wine produced from this estate. It comes from a single vineyard planted at 300 meters elevation and there is apparently less than 200 bottles allocated to the US!

Paraiso Natural is a micro-project between New York based Brits, Liz Mckiver and Richard Barnett, and their Portuguese friends, winemakers Miguel and Leli Viseu. High in the mountains of Ponte de Lima and nestled in the tiny village of Paraiso, a single vineyard of Loureiro grows at 300 meters elevation. Very few vines are planted at such high elevation, even less surrounded by a completely natural environment. Only 20km off the coast, the vines are constantly touched by the ocean's breeze and are grown organically.
