The Azevedo domains date back to the 11th century when they were granted by royal donation to the Azevedo family.  The vineyards and winery of this imposing property, whose mysterious tower remains untouched since the 15th century, history is honored with the creation of the best white wines.

Vinification takes place in the Quinta de Azevedo winery, with smooth reception and destemming in order to preserve the characteristics of the grapes. The must is routed with temperature control and protected from oxidation with inert gases. Soft pressing in a pneumatic press with some pre-fermentative maceration. Alcoholic fermentation at a temperature between 16 and 18oC, carried out by selected yeasts.

Clear and bright with a citrus yellow hue. Very focused aroma with fresh citrus notes such as lime peel and very ripe lemon. Hints of stone fruits, nectarine and floral suggestions. Good volume and texture in the mouth, very well integrated acidity, firm and fresh. Balanced and refreshing finish.

The wine’s profile makes it suitable for fish dishes, sushi and fresh salads, seafood and aperitifs. Its fresh character makes this wine an excellent choice for drinking outside meal times.

Assemblage: 70% Loureiro, 30% Alvarinho
