2017 AB Valley Wines Alvarinho Minho

Fleshy, ripe tropical and stone fruit flavors are on full display in this Portuguese Alvarinho, with accents of honeysuckle in the aromatics. This wine is sourced from two regions of Vinho Verde, in the north and south. The climate differences of each region gives the wine a yin and yang of lusciousness, juxtaposed with a sense of vibrancy. Enjoy this delicious white on its own or with grilled seafood.

Did You Know?

Maintaining a constant temperature is critical for fermenting wine. Winemakers in ancient cultures buried amphorae in the ground to keep a wine's temperature steady – some modern winemakers still prefer the same technique over modern equipment and cooling systems.
