Produced by Aveleda, this dry and zesty Alvarinho is a Colheita Selecionada or a single vineyard special selection wine from the winery's estate vineyards. Fragrant with ripe melon, fresh green herbs and briny aromas. Dry, zesty and creamy on the palate with bright apple, pear, herbs and briny mineral flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food. Pair with grilled seafood dishes.

Alvarinho food pairings: fresh steamed shellfish, grilled sardines, fish tacos.
