"A touch of nougat, savoury richness in perfume, sniff of dried apple, then fresh apple and stone fruits. Complex in the palate " rich texture but fringed with chalky edges, deep in flavour but set on sheets of saline acidity. Great drive and energy. Lots of intrigue. You'd not usually see Vinho Verde this interesting or complex."

"Here is an Alvarinho (the Portuguese word for Albarino) from the Vinho Verde DOC region in the northern corner of Portugal. This wine is grown at high altitude, producing a fresh, crisp style that defines the region. However the steely grape flavours are enhanced by some skin and lees contact adding layers of flavour and texture producing a very modern Vinho Verde wine."
