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.

    Bright, crystal clear, light/green pale straw colour.

  • Aroma

    White stone fruit aromas of peach and apricot with hints of tangerine peel, enhanced by mineral complexity.

  • Ageing Process

    4 months ageing on light lees before cold stabilization and bottling.

  • Food Pairing

    Ideal with shellfish or as a refreshing aperitif.

Reviews

Jancis Robinson

Excellent acidity and drive. Spreads all the way across the palate. Lime fruit on the finish. Very racy indeed. Great for current drinking. Very ‘cool’. Masses of integrity.

16.5

Steven Spurrier

Bright and clear light yellow with lemon tints, white fruits on the nose, fresh pear, peach but not apple, attractively tangy and lifted fruit on the palate, quite broad but very clear and precise, good tightness and lift on the finish with tangy acidity remaining to refresh the palate.
