Aveleda Alvarinho 2011

15.5 / 20
Producer: Aveleda
Region: Minho
Country: Portugal

Really lightly colored, almost fully transparent with some green tinges, this Alvarinho has a nicely fresh and intense bouquet, mixing flowery notes - orange blossom - with some tropical fruits - grapefruits and passionfruit.

Light in the palate, although showing some presence, this has a nice fresh feel to it, dry and showing a nicely tuned citrus feel that cleans and refreshes the palate, while showing sweeter tropical fruit. Good, average length finale that enhances even further the citrus, dry approach.

Good Vinho Verde and quite a bargain for its current price.
