Description

Ageing:

Stored in stainless steels vats until bottling.

Tasting Notes:

This Alvarinho is unoaked and dry, leaving the purity of fruit to shine through. Classic Alvarinho notes of stone fruits find a lovely intensity; bright nectarine and fresh young apricots dance with more delicate notes of dried flowers; camomile and honeysuckle. Gorgeously vibrant and saline acidity lift the fruit along to a persistent, mouth-watering finish.
