2018 Quinta da Aveleda Alvarinho Vinho Verde

SKU #1440631 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 The ripe, creamy character of Alvarinho from the Monção and Melgaço subregion of Vinho Verde gives this wine a smooth character that is sharpened by touches of minerality. It is packed with refreshing fruitiness from the lingering juicy acidity. (RV)  (11/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Alvarinho is dry, with 1.51 grams of residual sugar, 6.5 of total acidity and 12.5% alcohol. There is no added carbonation. Showing good concentration for the price level, but a touch of leanness overall, this nonetheless has beautiful purity of fruit and a fresh feel. It's still one to drink young, even though it can hold a few years. It's worth leaning up today. It's a very nice value. There were 220,000 bottles produced. Aveleda says that 2018 was an abnormal vintage and hard to predict, where the actions in the vineyard were crucial. Plus, a heat wave in August caused higher pH levels in the grapes, producing more structured wines than average. (MS)  (8/2019)

Quite simply the perfect wine for a springtime afternoon cocktail! Also just about perfect with light aperitifs.
