A wonderful expression of this single variety. All the elegance and natural acidity of Trajadura is used to balance the natural winemaking. Lots of bright, zesty citrus and stone fruit, with white floral aromatics. Bready lees notes and minerality give texture and a little weight to the palate.
An easy-going, very drinkable, fun fizz! A perfect aperitif, but with enough to pair with light dishes too.
Quinta da Raza was established by Diogo's forebears in 1791, and today he and Mafalda have 40 hectares of prime vineyard, in the sub region of Celorico do Basto. This is southern Vinho Verde, not too far from the lower reaches of the Douro, and in sheltered uplands at around 250m, with distinct soils. Their classic Vinho Verde is utterly delicious, with fruit quality shining through, whilst varietal offerings are denser, but still with freshness and lightness of touch.
