  • Winemaker Notes Quinta de Covela’s first-ever Vinho Verde. Edição Nacional, or National Edition, refers to the Avesso grape, 100% Portuguese and native to Covela’s sub-region. A dynamic, yet elegant Verde positioned alongside the best Alvarinhos and Loureiros. Enjoy at a temperature of around 7ºC to 8ºC (44ºF to 47ºF). An ideal wine to pair with grilled fish or seafood, and even sushi and sashimi. Its freshness and light-hearted character also make it a great wine to accompany starters or to be enjoyed al fresco as an aperitif in the company of family or friends.
  • Tasting Notes The color is bright and citric, and the nose features white flower and stone fruit aromas. There is a good balance between the fruit and acidity with a crisp, elegant finish.
  • Press WA 91, WS 88
