Aveleda Fonte White is a blend made from indigenous varieties from the Vinho Verde Wine Region. The night harvest allows the grapes to keep their freshness and, consequently, preserve their aromatic properties. When arriving at the vinification center, the grapes undergo soft pressing at low pressures. The alcoholic fermentation happens in stainless steel vats under strictly controlled temperatures to preserve the most typical aromas of the varieties. Fermentation happens in contact with lees in order to keep the freshness of the wine.
Clear pale yellow, this wine is extremely elegant, with a crisp and fruity bouquet marked by notes of green apple and lime. Slightly fizzy, with a vibrant minerality and refreshing notes of citrus fruits, this wine is extremely versatile, perfect to pair with the simplest moments of life.
