Wine Review: This pale white wine opens with a fresh and winter air like mild bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied wine is crisp, fresh, and shows light green apple flavors with nicely integrated minerality. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This is an easy going white to enjoy with shellfish. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Selected grape varieties are brought from the extensive vineyards of the Vinho Verde Region to our winery, to produce a smooth, fresh wine with a delicate aroma. It is the wine with the longest history at Aveleda and is easily identified by its blue label, which represents one of the magnificent embroideries of the Minho region.
