This is 100% Alvarino, and like its Spanish cousins it has a lovely lightness of touch on the palate. With its distinctive smoky nose, aromatic peachy fruit, and a touch of greengage acidity it is marginally richer than the previous vintage, but that only makes it all the more drinkable. Perfect with any kind of fish or seafood, and really great value.

A newly planted vineyard, because the Alvarinho they were taking form a neighbour wasn't good enough. A little floral lift to this, a small percentage of old oak I not perceptible as aroma, but it has loads of citrus and juicy orangey acidity, a little hint of saltiness, and it has lovely style.
