Minho, Vinho Verde, Portugal
This gorgeous blend of Alvarinho and Malvasia Fina opens with flint, citrus and crushed white flower notes on the nose. The palate is nervy and vibrant, tingling with mouthwatering acidity. There is a surprising intensity, with plenty of depth. The flint and citrus continue from the nose to the palate, but there are notes of apricot and peach, ripe pear and a long finish.
