Melon fresh and mouth-watering: more personality than most vinho verdes I've tasted. Great aperitif. This lively white really highlights the refreshing nature of the Alvarinho grape, which is known in Spain as Albariño. Vibrant notes of lime-citrus course through the glass with a lovely silver seam of acidity to keep things interesting, especially with seafood.

Albarino Alvarinho food pairings: fish, cheese, grilled pork, spiced mixed olives with garlic and orange, appetizers, summer salads.

Here’s a juicy, nervy and vivacious Vinho Verde sporting aromas of sweetgrass, white grapefruit, white peach and mineral. Some tangy green pear joins the party on the palate, where plenty of stony mineral contributes a nice mouth-feel. Crispness and refreshment in a bottle. Chill and sip with seafood appetizers.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
