Very pretty perfumed nose with lemon oil, upfront citrus flavours, floral hints. This is a real surprise if you associate Douro with a more hefty style.
Super fresh and youthful, with a teeny hint of nuts or bitterness on the finish – a nice touch that keeps things fresh, and takes you back for another sip.
This wine is really water white in colour, yet offers a ton more flavour and aroma than that might suggest. The nose and the palate are alive and full of sharp, well defined character.
Rui Cunha is winemaker at Quinta da Covela, and this is his personal project.
Really stellar value for money.
