Alvarinho is a white variety, original from the Upper Minho, in Portugal, and Rias Baixas, in Spain, separated one each other by Minho river; a unique wine district shared by two countries. Their aromatic complexity, some times with a dominant fruity character, other times with a wonderful combination of fruity and floral notes make them extremely pleasant and delicate. A balanced acidity adds the freshness that most consumers also look for in white wines. Vintage: 2009 Area: Vinho Verde, Portugal Varietal: Alvarinho Vinification: Grapes were transported to the winery, lightly pressed and fermented cool in stainless steel tanks at between 15 and 18 degrees. Selected yeasts were added to start the fermentation. Tasting note: Mineral notes combined with apple, plums and peach with citrus and floral hints in the background. A wonderfully fresh, fruity flavour with buttery tones through to a long and aromatic finish. Serve: Best served between 8 and 10 degrees. Serve with: Salads, perfect with fish and seafood, also as an aperitif.

Their aromatic complexity, some times with a dominant fruity character, other times with a wonderful combination of fruity and floral notes make them extremely pleasant and delicate. A balanced acidity adds the freshness that most consumers also look for in white wines. Although the Portuguese Alvarinho district (Monção sub-region) is integrated in Vinho Verde region, th...
