Azevedo, Alvarinho Reserva, Vinho Verde, Portugal, 2020Regular price £12.00
This 100% Alvarinho perfectly balances this grape’s aromatic intensity with a crisp and refreshing acidity.
Clear and bright yellow in colour. On the nose the wine boasts intense aromas of nectarine, apricot and mango along with floral nuances. Full flavoured and rich on the palate but balanced by a lively acidity which carries the ripe fruit flavours onto the lingering finish.
When Fernando Guedes acquired this historic estate in 1982, he immediately set out to transform it and pioneered the production of quality Vinho Verde. He revolutionised the viticulture by planting 35 hectares of cordon-trained vineyards, rather than the traditional high-trained pergolas, and built a modern winery with state-of-the-art facilities for the production of fresh and elegant wines. Today, winemaker António Braga makes an impressive range of whites, all marked by a signature freshness and pure and precise flavours.
