The 35-hectare Azevedo estate is located in the Vinho Verde sub-region of Cávado, just 25 kilometres from the Atlantic coast. The land was granted to the Azevedo family by royal decree in the 12th century and the manor house and tower (seen on the labels) date back to the 15th century. However, this fantastic history is in contrast to a very modern approach to viticulture and winemaking.
The Alvarinho grapes for this wine are sourced from prime vineyard sites in the Vinho Verde region located slightly further inland and more sheltered from the cooling influence of the Atlantic. This warmer microclimate allows the Alvarinho grape to reach optimum levels of ripeness with great aromatic intensity balanced by its signature acidity. Soils are predominantly granitic and the vines are cordon trained, ensuring good air circulation and excellent exposure for the grapes.
Clear and bright yellow in colour. On the nose the wine boasts intense aromas of nectarine, apricot and mango along with floral nuances. Full flavoured and rich on the palate but balanced by a lively acidity which carries the ripe fruit flavours onto the lingering finish.
