This barrel-fermented Alvarinho is sourced from vineyards near Casa De Vilar. It is a wine with a completely unique profile, separate from the expressive and fragrant style that typically characterizes this grape variety in the Minho region. The "Wanabi," as the name suggests, is a wine that aspires to be a new kind of Alvarinho.
Tasting Notes
This Alvarinho is a wine of exceptional finesse, with lovely citrus and floral scents that blend with traces of tea leaves and wet stone. The wine's aromatic richness is enhanced by the wine's slight presence of oak. On the palate, the wine has weight, vivacity, and balance, while its acidity and minerality give a counterpoint to the wine's delicate residual sweetness.
Food Pairing
It goes well with shellfish, delicate fish or soft cheese. Vegetarian suggestions: Caesar Salad, eggplants, humus.
