Covela Escolha White 2016
Vinho Verde, Portugal
Spontaneous fermentation. Finishing with Bentonite when necessary. Light filtration. Manual plotting by plotting, allowing the right grapes to be harvested at the right time. Transport in small boxes. Brief maceration of selected grapes. Fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature.
Bright straw colour. Expressive. Floral with exuberant notes of tropical fruits and good intensity. The light touches of the region's granite minerality promise a complex wine. Dry, with well balanced acidity and minerality, typical of the region. Although fresh and refreshing, this wine has notes of ripe fruits and a certain creaminess against the mineral background. Long and elegant finish. A wine with abundant personality.
