Natalie's Score: 87/100

The 2016 vintage of the Muralhas De Monção is made from the iconic grape Alvarinho along with Trajadura in the Vinho Verde region of northern Portugal. Refreshing white wine with distinctive white grapefruit and white pepper notes. No oak. Crisp, clean and pure with a laser-like focus and intensity. Good aperitif, but better companion to seafood and salads.

Vinho Verde food pairings: grilled calamari, steamed mussels, stuffed squid.

Reviews and Ratings

Muralhas De Monção 2016 is a well-priced Alvarinho and Trajadura white wine blend from the Vinho Verde region in northern Portugal. Dry, refreshing with laser acidity, this one could cut through butter all by itself. Pair with grilled calamari or scampi in garlic butter. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
