Grape: 100% Alvarinho (Albariño)
Tasting Notes: Pink Grapefruit, Mineral, White Fruits, Green Apple
Aveleda S.A is owned by the same family, the Guedes, for 5 generations. Since its foundation in 1870, the passion for winemaking, for the sustainable treatment of the surrounding environment, for biodiversity and for the attention to detail are still the guiding principles of the group.
This beautiful, socially responsible certified wine has a vigorous structure, and is finely textured with a firm underlying character that will allow this rich wine to age. The palate is lively and concentrated with lots of vibrant acidity and salty minerality and flavors of grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, stone, minerality, white peach, and nectarine. Fantastic length on the finish. Pair with seafood curry or mussels steamed in white wine.
