Tasting notes
Gazela has a very light yellow citrine color, with a slight fizz that enhances its bouquet, flavors, and freshness. Aromatic and engaging, Gazela adds to its citrine and tropical fruit notes a lively and stimulating acidity, very well balanced by a bright fruit finish.

Review
Gazela is a blended wine made from selected grapes from the traditional Vinho Verde varieties, both company- owned and from private farmers. The predominant variety is Loureiro, with Pedernă, Trajadura and Azal being used in smaller amounts. Gazela has a very light yellow citrine colour, with a slight fizz that enhances its bouquet, flavours and freshness. Aromatic and engaging, Gazela adds to its citrine and tropical fruit notes a lively and stimulating acidity, very well balanced by a slight touch of sugar. The end product is a simple, versatile and very attractive wine. Given its freshness, Gazela is a wine that is best drunk young

Technical notes
Gazela is produced at Quinta de Azevedo wine centre, a splendid estate owned by Sogrape Vinhos near Barcelos, in the Vinho Verde Region. Hand-picked grapes undergo soft stem-removal and crushing. The resulting must is separated from skins in pneumatic presses and subjected to static decanting for about 24 hours, suitably protected from oxidation, until it reaches the required level of clarity. Fermentation in stainless steel vats then follows, under a controlled temperature of about 16º C.
