Aromas of ripe melon, and white peach with a hint of honeysuckle. Dry and fresh yet with an attractive, round mid-palate. Great with grilled sardines, mackerel or flavoured hummus and dips.

The wine is made by Francisco Baptista, who founded this project based on exploring the different terroirs of Vinho Verde; based at the northern end of Portugal where the temperate climate is heavily influenced by the Atlantic. The local landscape is green and lush with many vines still trained on traditional overhead trellises. This wine hails from the broader Minho region, which includes Vinho Verde itself. Alvarinho is one of the predominant white grape varieties of the region. The destemmed grapes undergo a long gentle pressing before fermentation in stainless steel tank.
