Casal de Ventozela Contatto Orange

$12.00

Overview

Casal de Ventozela consists of 45 hectares of sustainably farmed vineyards in the heart of the Vinho Verde region. The vines are located in 2 sub-Vale do Ave and Vale do Covado. The estate is a family run business, with a strong focus on the environment and a genuine passion for wine and nature. Ve-Ve (pronounced “vee-vee”) is inspired by what we hope you’ll find inside: Vitality, Vivacity, Verve, and Vibrancy.
 
Hand picked, de-stemmed, fermentation in 5000L tanks, on the skins, for about 2 weeks. Left to settle for another 2 weeks then pressed into tank for 3 months on lees, with occasional battonage. Lightly fined and filtered. Minimal SO2. This Orange Vinho Verde is the perfect introduction to the world of Orange wine without breaking the bank. The skin contact (contatto) adds a beautiful coppery/rose tint and nuanced flavors of yellow peaches, hints of orange and apricot with a pleasant, salty acidity. Not too funky on the palate, this delicate Vinho Verde would be a refreshing sipper on its own but would also pair wonderfully with vegetable dishes and light fish off the grill.
