2019 Alvarinho, Quinta da Calcada, Minho, Portugal
This exceptional Portuguese Alvarinho (Albarino in Spain) has pleasant fruity and floral aroma with mineral notes. In the mouth it has a generous texture, lovely stone fruit flavours and a long and persistent finish.
25cl cans (4 pack) - Bowl Grabber Alvarinho, Vinho Verde, Portugal
Bowl Grabber (adjective) - someone who holds their wine glass by the bowl, not the stem. A so called wine faux-pax, but for many a sign you belong to a growing community of people who care more about what’s inside the glass than outdated wine “rules”.
60+ year old bush vines, planted in limestone rich, pebbly soils, cool ferment, no oak. Crisp, spritzy and highly aromatic with intense lime and tropical notes.
