Description

Quinta da Raza Gouveio 2021

Quinta da Raza Gouveio is intensely mineral with white-fleshed fruit aromas that emerge as the wine evolves in the glass. Notes of sea salt make the wine gain another dimension in the mouth where it is surprisingly pure and delicate. and persistent flavour. This wine has a good aging potential, developing additional complexity, mouth feel and flavour.

This wine results from a rigorous selection of our best Avesso grapes and the perfect communion between technique and tradition. The grape crop is picked manually into small boxes. The grapes are destemmed and then pressed at low pressure. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Before bottling, the wine is filtered and cold stabilized.
