The Alvarinho grapes were sourced from prime vineyard sites in the Vinho Verde region located slightly further inland and more sheltered from the cooling influence of the Atlantic. This warmer microclimate allows the Alvarinho grape to reach optimum levels of ripeness with great aromatic intensity.
The 2019 vintage was characterised by cooler than average temperatures during the summer. This lengthened the growing season and allowed the grapes to ripen at a perfectly steady pace, accumulating great concentration of flavour whilst retaining a vibrant acidity. Harvest occurred slightly later than usual and the Alvarinho harvested was of excellent quality with expressive aromatics combined with a lovely fresh profile. Clear and bright yellow in colour. On the nose the wine boasts intense aromas of nectarine, apricot and mango along with floral nuances. Full flavoured and rich on the palate but balanced by a lively acidity which carries the ripe fruit flavours onto the lingering finish.
