Nortico, Alvarinho 2021, Minho, Portugal

Tasting Note: A bright, fresh alvarhino that is perfect for summer or paired with light dishes.

Medium-intensity lemon in color with some small bubbles, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of green apple, peach stonefruit, lychee, honeydew melon and blossom.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied alvarhino has medium intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a lemon-citrus, medium-plus finish.

The wine is straightforward and good in its dimension.

A good example of the grape.

Bottle Note: 100% alvarhino. Vinho Regional Minho.
