Azevedo Loureira Alvarinho 2020 White Wine – Vinho Verde, Portugal
70% Loureiro, 30% Alvarinho
Clear and bright with young greenish tones. An expansive aroma, with notes of ripe mango, nectarine and hints of well-ripened citrus fruit. This fruitiness is also present on the palate, alongside a balanced acidity that provides great freshness, as well as balance. This wine has a harmonious, fruity finish.
The wine is vinified at Quinta de Azevedo, and undergoes gentle destemming on arrival to preserve the full character of the grapes. The must is channeled at controlled temperatures and protected from oxidation by inert gases. Soft pressing in a pneumatic press takes place with some pre-fermentation maceration.
Alvarinho is one of the greatest white wine varieties of Portugal, and Loureiro and Alvarinho together are the classic grape varieties of the Vinho Verde region. Azevedo is a fresh and elegant white wine that evokes history, tradition and legacy. Since the 15th century, this imposing property, granted to the Azevedo family by royal decree, has been producing superior Vinho Verde wines.
