Quinta da Aveleda Loureiro & Alvarinho 2019

Vinhos Verde, Northern Portugal, PortugalThe Guedes family has owned Quinta da Aveleda since the 15th C, and the family has practiced viticulture for 5 generations, dating back to the 1870s. Their 150HA estate includes 7HA of lush gardens, where majestic roaming peacocks strut their stuff. This is a blend of loureiro and albariƱo, in the granitic sands of the estate. With freshness as aim, this was fermented and rested briefly in stainless. The result is a bright, crisp, and fresh VV, with tight lemon, green apple, subtle melon on a light, snappy palate to a sour finish. Easy and bright and clean, enjoy this with salads and shellfish.Tasted: 06 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 13.00 LCBO Producer: Quinta da AveledaDistributors: Dandurand
