    This is a very cool collective from Vinho Verde, representing one of the most important winegrowing regions of Portugal. This youthful Alvarinho shows great aromatic intensity, with notes of passionfruit, lemon, mango, grass, and green plum. Fresh, refreshing, and crisp while also creamily textured. On the palate, it’s refined, with balancing acidity and a long, lingering finish.
