Wine Review: This wine opens with a distinctive fresh bouquet. On the palate, this light white wine has a dry, spritzer like feel in the mouth. The light citrus flavors liven up your taste buds. This well balanced wine was an excellent complement to stemmed mussels, grilled shrimp, and scallops. Find this Very Good white wine for your next seafood meal. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aveleda is presented in a very special way, in a slender bottle with a label that takes us back in time. It is produced in our winery with grapes from the Vinho Verde Region - the most extensive in Portugal. The careful temperature control during the winemaking process produces a wine that is slightly citrine in colour, clear and bright. Its gentle and fruity aroma gives it a smooth, delicate flavour.
