  • Winemaker Notes 100% Touriga Nacional, Portugal’s most emblematic red grape. Made by the classical rosé method, this wine is known for its elegant pairing of palid hue and balanced structure. A dry, gastronomic rosé.
  • Tasting Notes Color: Pale, rose-petal pink
    Nose: Fresh and light, notes of strawberry and a touch of citrus.
    Palate: Dry with vibrant, yet fine acidity. A rosé with structure and medium to long finish, marked by a touch of spice and blueberries.
    Enjoy at a temperature between 8°C and 10°C. Ideal for outdoor meals and other “al fresco” moments, by the sea, by the pool, on the terrace, in
    the garden, but always in good company. A gastronomic rosé which lends itself very well to all sorts of summer fare and also Asian cuisine.
  • Vineyard At Quinta de Covela we practice organic farming on the granitic soils that form a natural, South-facing amphitheater of low-lying terraces overlooking the right bank of the Douro river. Covela lies in the southeastern-most corner of the Vinho Verde demarcated region, on the borderline between the continental climate of inland Portugal and
    the maritime influences of the Atlantic coast to the West.
  • Vinification Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel vats and fining with bentonite when necessary. No use of enzymes. Aged on fine lees until mid-March. Cold stabilization. Light filtration.
  • Viticulture Manual harvesting. Harvest organized by vineyard plots to ensure harvesting at the right time. Transport in small boxes to avoid crushing.
  • Shelf Talkers
