Quintas do Homem, Vale do Homem Alvarinho 2018, Vinho Regional Minho, Portugal
Tasting Note: A spritely alvarinho dripping with flavor intensity and all those tropical fruit flavors that make it such a fun wine to serve in enjoy.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of pineapple, honey dew melon, peach stonefruit, cumquat, blossom and lemon-citrus peel.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied alvarinho has ripe, medium-plus-intensity fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long finish.
The wine has a slightly-creamy texture with balance between the fruit and acidity.
Will make you want to pick up another bottle right away.
