Covela Edição Nacional Arinto 2018
Light filtration, manual plotting by plotting, allowing the right grapes to be harvested at the right time. Transport in small boxes. Fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. Bright and citrus color. Intensely fresh with subtle mineral character. Notes of citrus fruits and field flowers. Dry and elegant, well balanced acidity and fruity, but with a strength typical of the sunny region of the “Douro Verde” (the southernmost part of the Vinho Verde region, where the vineyards also benefit from the warmer climate of the Douro River).

Bright, citric colour.
Dry and elegant. Nicely-balanced acidity and fruity, yet with a strength typical of the sun-soaked “Douro Verde” region (the southernmost part of the Vinho Verde region where vineyards also profit from the hotter climate of the Douro river).
This is an ideal wine to pair with plain grilled fish or seafood. 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 good friends.
Intensely fresh with subtle mineral character. Notes of zesty, citric fruits and meadow flowers.
