Quinta da Covela Escolha White 2015
Light filtration, manual plotting by plotting, allowing the right grapes to be harvested at the right time. Transport in small boxes, brief maceration of selected grapes, fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. Bright, expressive, floral straw color with intoxicating notes of tropical fruits and good intensity. Granitic minerality in the region promises a complex wine. Dry, with well balanced acidity, typical of the region. Although fresh and refreshing, this wine has notes of ripe fruits and a certain creaminess against the mineral background. Long and elegant finish. A wine with abundant personality.
Distinctions: 17.5 pts in Revista de Vinhos; Recommended Decanter World Wine Awards.

Bright, straw colour.
Dry, with nicely-balanced acidity and minerality typical of the region. Despite being fresh and refreshing, this wine has notes of ripe stone fruits and displays a certain creaminess against the mineral backdrop
An excellent wine to pair with starters, though best when accompanying fish and seafood. Also gives a nice twist to poultry, pasta and some pork dishes. An excellent foil for creamy sauces.
Expressive, floral with heady notes of tropical fruit and good intensity. Undertones of the region’s granitic minerality promise a complex wine.
