Aveleda Minho Alvarinho 2011

Other White from Portugal
Review Date : 25-Feb-2013
Bright pale straw colour with lemon-green hues. The bouquet is softly intense with attractive aromas of passionfruit entwined with greengage fruit, lifted with subtle esters, exotic florals and herbal elements. Dry to taste, softly concentrated fruit flavours of tropical fruits and herbs flow smoothly on the palate. The mouthfeel is finely textured and slippery from refreshing acidity which enhances the fruit interest. The flavours lead effortlessly to a long and sustained finish with clear fruity notes. This is a soft and smooth, slippery dry Portuguese Alvarinho with an open core of fruitiness. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years. 100% Alvarinho fruit from the Minho region, Portugal, tank-fermented to 12.5% alc. and <2 g/L rs, the wine aged on lees. Winemaker Manuel Soares with Denis Dubourdieu as consultant. 17.0+/20 Feb 2013 RRP $21.00
