Gazela Vinho Verde White
This vinho verde contains a light yellow citrine color, with a slightly fizz to the taste that enhances its bouquet, flavors and freshness. Aromatic and engaging, Gazela adds to its citrine and tropical fruit notes a lively and stimulating acidity, very well balanced by a slight touch of sugar. The end product is a simple, versatile and very attractive wine.

Gazela is produced at Quinta de Azevedo wine centre, a splendid estate owned by Sogrape Vinhos near Barcelos, in the Vinho Verde Region. Hand-picked grapes undergo soft stem-removal and crushing. The resulting must is separated from skins in pneumatic presses and subjected to static decanting for about 24 hours, suitably protected from oxidation, until it reaches the required level of clarity. Fermentation in stainless steel vats then follows, under a controlled temperature of about 16°C.
