Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Alvarinho opens with a very light lemon and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and clean. The flavor profile is a very delicate lime-lemon with a touch of minerality mixed in. The finish is dry and pleasant. This wine is quite versatile. I would pair it with garlic chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Produced exclusively with Alvarinho grapes. This dry white wine presents a straw color, complex flowery aromas, with accents of peaches and tropical fruits. On the palate, this wine offers a very fresh, soft and silky elegancy, revealing hints of spicy citrine flavors.
