Quinta de Covela
Rui Walter Cunha
Manual harvesting. Harvest organized by parcels of vines to ensure harvest at the right time. Transport in small boxes to avoid crushing. Skin maceration. Soft pressing. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks with temperature control. Stage on fine lees until mid March. No use of enzymes and collages, when necessary, made with bentonite. Wines stabilized by cold. Light filtration. Bright citrus color. Aroma expressive, floral with notes of tropical fruits and good intensity. But with interesting complexity thanks to the signs of the granite minerality of the region. In the mouth it is dry. A well balanced acidity. Although fresh, this wine has notes of peach, apricot and has a certain creaminess. Long and elegant finish, it is a wine with a strong personality. Contains Sulfites.
