We’re throwing it back (it is #ThrowbackThursday after all) to the delicious single varietal Alvarinho. We’ve discussed how Alvarinhos differ from the traditional Vinho Verde blend but did you know that each Alvarinho possesses a unique personality? It’s true! This one is particularly fresh, but Alvarinho’s can also age for quite a few years.
“The 2015 Vale dos Ares Alvarinho from MQ Vinhos begins with a pleasing aroma of grapefruit, guava and other tropical fruit along with a little peach and honeysuckle. Tasting the wine reveals lots of honey-soaked, rich and fresh tropical fruit flavors as well as citrus, peach and apricot. The wine alse features a smooth, mouth-filling and luxurious texture. A bit of minerality leads into the dry, tart and delicious finish.” – Reverse Wine Snob
