|Availability:||In stock (5)|
Just when you thought you knew Vinho Verde, we introduce you to the rarest grape in the DOC: Avesso. Cazas Novas was first bottled in 2008, but the estate has family roots going back seven generations. In Santa Marinha do Zêzere, Baião, the southeast corner of Vinho Verde that overlooks the Douro Valley, the Cunha Coutinho family fell in love with the grape whose name suggests an aversion towards something. Avesso is loyal only to its native terroir and therefore created its own exclusivity.
Destemmed, lightly pressed and settled for 48 hours. Cold fermentation proceeds in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 18 days. Aged sur lie for 4 months with regular batonnage.
Bright citrus-straw in color with expressive white fruit and floral aromatics. Delivers a proper balance of freshness, minerality and acidity. The medium body is supported by fruit and a crisp and energetic finish.
