Edição Nacional Covela is produced from Avesso wine grapes from the southeastern limit of the Vinhos Verde wine region with vineyards overlooking the Douro River. Great acidity and mouth-watering briny finish on this vibrant white made for grilled shellfish. The wine grapes are organically grown. Light herbs on the nose with white stone fruit and fresh lemon zest flavours finishing crisp on the palate. Enjoy now in all its freshness.

Avesso food pairings: pan-fried panfish, grilled chicken, seafood stew.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
