Edição Nacional – Avesso

Dating from the 1500s, the ruins of the old, stone Casa de Covela, today composed of the facade of the original Renaissance manor house and the more recent chapel of St. Quiteria, bear witness to the centuries-old agricultural and cultural importance of the estate.

  • 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.
  • Tasting Notes Color: Bright, citric.
    Nose: White flowers, stone fruit.
    Palate: Good balance between fruit and acidity with a crisp, elegant finish.

    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.
