(2012 Vintage) The Aveleda estate is the source of the fruit for this dry, delicious Vinho Verde. It’s a reference for the food-friendly, lemon and grapefruit style, adding minerality and a taut texture to the forward fruitiness.
Wine SpectatorRating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Wine Spectator on 01/01/06
Wine & SpiritsRating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 08/09. Lean and focused as a young wine, this is packed with fruit and mineral flavors. Spend some time with the wine and you might find orange blossom, lemon and lime pith, peach skin and smoky minerality. The tartness will round out with a few months of bottle age. For any fruits de mer.
