Vinho Verde, Portugal

100% Alvarinho

Forget everything you think you know about Vinho Verde when you put a glass of this Alvarinho (Portuguese name for Albarino) to your nose. Dense aromas of tropical fruits and perfumed florals jump out of the glass. Upon entry, an explosion of lemon, apple, herbs and minerals dance to a pleasingly bitter finish. The body is surprisingly full but the natural acidity of the grape keeps the wine from being cloying.

Average age of the vines is 20 years old, all planted on alluvium (stream deposit) consisting in gravelly and sandy soils.

Grapes were transported to the winery immediately after the harvest in small size boxes. They were smoothly pressed before fermentation in stainless-steel tanks, with temperature control. Selected yeasts were added for the fermentation. Aged on lees for 3-4 months but the wine did not see any oak.

Fish and seafood are strongly associated to the white wine consumption. With Reguengo de Melgaço Alvarinho wines it’s no different as this wine would make a wonderful pairing with fish and seafood, poultry, or salad. However, the volume, attack and intense flavor of this wine allows for more unconventional pairings such as chili.
