Producer: Fernando Guedes
When Fernando Guedes acquired the historic Azevedo estate in 1982, he immediately set out to transform it and pioneered the production of quality Vinho Verde. He revolutionised the viticulture by planting 35 hectares of cordon-trained vineyards, rather than the traditional high-trained pergolas, and built a modern winery with state-of-the-art facilities for the production of fresh and elegant wines. Today, winemaker António Braga makes an impressive range of whites, all marked by a signature freshness and pure and precise flavours.
Tasting Note: This wine is clear and bright with greenish tints. On the nose intense aromas of peaches and nectarines mingle with ripe citrus fruit and herbal nuances. On the palate, it has a creamy texture with great concentration of flavour. A lively acidity invites a long and balanced finish.
Food Matches: Seafood, grilled fresh fish, white meats and as an aperitif.
