Azevedo `Quinta de Azevedo` Vinho Verde Reserva, Portugal
Premium Vinho Verde we brought in for a recent Luke's Case we had a few bottles left so we thought we would include it in our Black Friday sale. The standard version of this wine has been supremely popular over the past year and so I had no choice to level-up for Luke’s Case and choose the Reserva which comes from the best vineyards in the region. When Fernando Guedes acquired this historic estate in 1982, he immediately set out to transform it and pioneered the production of quality Vinho Verde. He revolutionised the viticulture by planting 35 hectares of cordon-trained vineyards, rather than the traditional high-trained pergolas, and built a modern winery with state-of-the-art facilities for the production of fresh and elegant wines. Today, winemaker António Braga makes an impressive range of whites, all marked by a signature freshness and pure and precise flavours. This fresh and invigorating white shows just why Vinho Verde continues to rise in popularity in the UK.
