The Primeiras Vinhas Alvarinho Vinho Verde is 85% fermented in stainless steel and 15% in oak. In the glass, the wine is pale yellow with a bit of a greenish hint, which his youthful nature still betrays. The wine has an aromatic nose with minerals and a hint of citrus that slowly unfolds in the glass. The flavour is full-bodied, fresh and complex with great final complexity.
"Textured with velvet mouthfeel, powerful finish but will definitely improve with a little bottle age. As always from this winery, great value."
