This wine is clear, pale lemon in color.
The condition of the wine is clean. It has medium intensity aromas of florals, citrus fruits, mineral and grass. When it gets a little warmer, green apple notes come forth as well.
This wine is dry with high acidity. It is light body wine with the same aromas that move right from the nose to the palate. Notes of floral, citrus, grass and mineral. Also has a malolactic fermentation creaminess to it that really reveals itself when the wine gets warmer.
The Gazela Vinho Verde from Gazela Wine is a good wine with light body for a really hot day and refreshing flavors with a hint of a sparkling component. Light on alcohol content so it’s perfect a midweek “at home” happy hour! I really thought it was a great wine for an unbeatable price.

Winemakers Tasting Notes
A light and refreshing Vinho Verde with a very soft citrine yellow color and slight fizz that stimulates the palate. An aromatic, flavorful bouquet, and notes of tropical fruit. Well balanced with a slight touch of sugar.
