Produced in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço of the Vinho Verde Region in the north west of Portugal where Alvarinho grapes are exclusively grown. This wine is made from cool climate grapes grown in the mountainous Melgaço area, and shows the typical minerality and tight acidity derived from the local stony granite soils.
100% Alvarinho aged for 4 months in stainless steel on lees, this wine is full of fresh citrus aromas, especially lime, that jump out of the glass. It is dry, clean and crisp. The fruit flavors are ripe and lush, highlighted by a mineral driven finish. This wine is great with anything from the sea. It is exceptionally good with white fish and meats, leafy green herbs, seafood risotto, fish tacos, oysters, mussels, clams, soft cheeses like burrata and salty feta.
13.5% ABV / 750ml
