Tasting Notes

Floral, citrus and gentle tropical aromas lead on to a palate which is deliciously off-dry with flavours
of ripe melon and sherbet lemon acidity. The finish is refreshing with a classic spritz.

Producer details

Casa de Vila Nova is owned by the Lencastre family, of aristocratic Portuguese lineage (one of their ancestors became the first Baron of Varzea do Douro in the 1800s). This land has been in their family since the 12th century - the ivy clad tower that still remains from that time is now surrounded by Vila Nova (new house) that was built in the 1700s, and the property was gradually extended over the centuries.

The estate is near the town of Penafiel, close to the eastern border of Portugal's vinho verde wine region, around a 30 minute drive east from Oporto. In the late 1970s the family planted vines over 12 hectares - mainly local Portuguese varieties. In 2008 Bernardo Lencastre and his brothers took over the running of the property, revitalised the vineyards and began making vinho verde and bottling their own wines - the first generation to do so. They now have around 42 hectares of vineyard.

Here, in the Entre-Douro-e-Minho sub-region of Sousa, their vineyards are influenced by winds from the Atlantic Ocean - creating the perfect climate to ripen varieties such as Fernao Pires, Avesso and Trajadura.

In the vineyard

Casa de Vila Nova is located in the sub region of Sousa, the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region, in the
North of Portugal. The vinho verde vineyards are exposed to the Atlantic Ocean winds and influence.
Soils, microclimate, grape varieties and the unique characteristics of the wine culture, distinguish it
from all other wine regions of the world.

In the winery

The grapes are harvested by hand in 20 kg boxes that are quickly transported to the winery where they are destemmed and soft pressed and temperature controlled fermentation.

Food Recommendations

Great as an aperitif - or serve with salads, sushi and grilled fish.
