The stranger stong in alcohol
This white grape variety hails from Portugal, where it is planted on around 2,500 hectares. Interestingly, this grape is virtually unknown outside of Spain, yet is also found on the Crimean Peninsula and in the Ukraine. Gouveio is represented in Australia, as well, where it is planted on around 200 hectares.
The grapes provide rich wines and present a moderate acidity, so Gouveio is often used in the production of white port and Madeira wines.
