Quinta da Aveleda 2017 (Portugal)

Name Quinta da Aveleda 2017
Varietal Vinho Verde
Region Portugal
Notes "A blend of 70% Loureiro and 30% Alvarinho, dry and coming in at 11.5% alcohol. Aveleda typically does an astonishing job here for modest money, making a serious wine in a non-fizzy style. This shows beautifully, given its fine concentration for the level and exceptional purity of fruit. The finish is long, tense and filled with flavor. In a region filled with awesome values, this is certainly one of the best bangs for the buck that you can get." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Light-bodied, with a plump feel to the crunchy peach, kumquat and pineapple flavors, showing mineral and floral notes that linger into the clean finish. Loureiro and Alvarinho. Drink now. 91,666 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
