Vinho Verde Rosé

Gazela Vinho Verde Rosé

Tasting Notes

A light pink wine, with a slight fizz which enhances its bouquet of red fruits (strawberries) and tropical fruits (bananas). On the palate, it has a lively and fresh attack with an intense flavor and good balance, the overall impression being of lightness and freshness, with a very elegant finish.


35% Borracal - Contributes tart red fruit and structure. 30% Espadeiro - Herbal notes. 30% Amaral - Lends a vibrant hue and mouthwatering acidity. 5% Vinhao - Bringing a bright aroma of wild berries.

Technical Notes

It is made exclusively from red grape varieties grown in the Vinho Verde region by the off skin fermentation method ("bica aberta"). A gentle treading and pressing enable the extraction and selection of a lightly rosé must, which is subsequently clarified until the required degree of limpidity is obtained, after which alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14ºC-16ºC.

Food Pairing

Gazela is ideal as an aperitif, with salads, fish, seafood dishes and Asiatic cuisine or sushi.

Did you know fact

One of Sogrape Vinhos’ most iconic and global brands. Vinho Verde in Northwest Portugal is the biggest DOC in the country with over 51,000 acres of vineyards. Its crisp and unoaked wines are released quickly after harvest and are meant to be drunk young. In 2015, with the help of a national and innovative marketing campaign, the word “gazelar” made its way into Portuguese lexicon. The ‘verb’ can be defined as to embark on a fun or relaxing experience, whether it be spending time with friends, relaxing on the beach with a glass of wine – anything that begs someone to say to their friends, let’s ‘gazelar.’
