Natalie's Score: 87/100

Extreme acidity, green freshness, lime zest. No oak, just laser focus and mouth-watering action. The Alvarinho grape is one of the least productive in the world so it yields concentrated flavours of stone fruit such as tart white peach and green pear. The Trajadura grape adds complexity and finesse. Both are traditional grapes of the Vinho Verde region.

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.
