  • Passaros Alvarinho/Trajadura Moncao E Melgaco In Vinhos Verdes 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly aromatic with a hint of floral spice on the nose followed by pithy citrus fruit aromas and some vaguely sweet fruity note along with hints of river stones and rosemary. Bright even tart on the palate with the faintest hint of trapped CO2 adding a bit lift to the lovely mineral, lemon and lime zest flavors. the backend picks up a little ... Read More

  • Pouco Comum Alvarinho 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Intensely perfumed on the nose, this shows a muscatty floral and spice accent to the core of lemon drop and vaguely tropical guava tinged fruit. Floral on entry as well, and then both quier acid driven but also perhaps with just enough RS to adds some roundness and support the fruit on the plate. the flavors run towards the sweet and creamy end ...

  • Aveleda Alvarinho 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A little diesel on the nose is layered under aromas of ripe peach with kiwifruit top notes. This shows great cut, a touch of sugar roundness supporting floral almost white peach, candied pink grapefruit and kiwi fruit flavors that lead to a zesty finish that shows a little melon with a gently fading sweetness. 87pts Read More

  • Aveleda Alvarinho 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Candied lime tops an umami laced nose that is quite dusty and polleny.  This is  a little loose on the palate, ripe and peachy and rather lazy in the mouth showing hints of cream and pineapple on the moderately long finish.  84pts Read More
