Fresh and fashionable, Alvarinho is the Portuguese cousin of the Spanish Abarinho grape. Commonly grown in the north west of Portugal, this Lisbon example expresses the high quality nature of the grape in a very approachable and extremely affordable style.

The zestiest of the three Alvarinho’s in our portfolio due to the Atlantic influence, possesses a bright citric colour with intense aromas of tropical fruits and apricot. It has a good structure which is balanced by an excellent acidity to give ripe white fruit, delicious length and a dry finish.

Style: Tangy White

Dietary: Vegetarian and vegan.

Environmental Practice: Sustainable agriculture / integrated pest management.

Serving Temperature: 7C – 9C

Suggestions: Sushi, shellfish and white meats are good matches for this wine. A great summertime drink that is just as good by itself as with a meal.
