Produced in the demarcated Vinho Verde region of Melgaço in northern Portugal, one of two special sub-regions where the Alvarinho grape can be cultivated. It shows the typical varietal characters from this mountainous region, minerality, persistent acidity and exotic fruit.
Aromas of lemon skin and dried apples plus hints of flowers and stones. Medium body, lovely freshness and density. Long and flavourful. Real Vinho Verde.
Deeply aromatic – even a suggestion of oak though the technical sheet says not – spiced with both pear and orange aromas. Intensely fragrant. Smells creamy too, thanks to the lees. There’s a lovely light tannic grip on the palate that balances the aromatic fruit perfectly, making this a wine that would be great on its own or at the table. Fresh as well as deep. Savoury and pear-fruited. Long and satisfying. Very good indeed. Has a great combination of power and freshness, expressing both the region and the variety. Delicious.
Bursts with tropical fruit – really juicy but concentrated pineapple with a touch of honey/syrup and lipsmacking greengage for balance. It maintained full throttle fruit and line on day two when it was too moreish not to disappear down the hatch!
