    Winemaker Notes

    A clear limpid Vinho Verde wine, with a yellow citrus hue and greenish hints. It has an intense bouquet with floral notes such as orange blossom, acacia and lime, typical of the Loureirovariety, against a background of citrus hints, complemented by mineral notes. Its palate has a lively, fresh attack, with well-balanced acidity, fine body and very fresh and intense citrus notes. It has a long and lingering finish.

    The wine matured for about 3 months in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures and was bottled following fining, tartaric ultra-cooling stabilization and filtration.

    A single-estate wine, Quinta de Azevedo has a seal of guaranteed quality. The winery is also one of the most modern in the region, with infrastructure built to produce the highest quality white wines, and the most up-to-date technology for planting, cultivation, and sustainability.

    Image of winery
    Quinta de Azevedo is located between the rivers Lima and Cavado, in the Vinho Verde Region. Made at the estate that gives it its name, the varieties chosen are among the region’s classics. Loureiro is the dominant one, and was chosen for its excellent bouquet qualities and character. Loureiro which grows best 25K from the sea, is at its best at Quinta De Azevedo.

    Quinta de Azevedo was purchased by Sogrape in 1982. The vineyards were set up following modern planting and lay-out systems which ensure improved exposure and airing, thus better preventing diseases and making possible to grow better fruit.

    The winery at Quinta de Azevedo is one of the most modern in the region. The whole infrastructure is aimed at the production of quality white wines, using the most up-to-date technology.

    Quinta de Azevedo is a fresh and elegant Vinho Verde, reflecting the superb quality, diversity and potential of the region in the production of white wines.

    Vinho Verde

    View all wine

    A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. The ‘green’ in the name refers to the youthful state in which the wines are customarily released and consumed, not the color of the wine.

    It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto). Following initial alcoholic fermentation, a natural, secondary malolactic conversion in cask produces carbon dioxide, giving Vinho Verde its charmingly light sparkle.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
