The following Green Wine selection is composed by Alvarinho.
Alvarinho is a white caste from Vitis vinifera species, and is the noblest Portuguese white caste, producing high quality wine. The Alvarinho wine has intense color (straw color), with citrus reflexes. The flavour is intense, distinct, delicate, soft, round, bodied, persistent and complex, ranging quince, peach, banana, lemon, passion fruit and lychee (fruity), the orange blossom and violet (floral character), hazelnut and walnut (character almonds) and honey (caramelized character). The wine has Portuguese origins in the regions of Monção and Melgaço, territory with 700 years of history, magnificent castles, and tradition in the cultivation of wineyard. This county has a microclimate characteristic that reflects the wine in taste and value of acidity that no neighboring county or region is able to translate in the wine Alvarinho caste. This grape variety is very rich in sugar, and yet provides a reasonable content of organic acids. The caste is moderately vigorous but quite rough, with a high fertility rate, has often 3 inflorescences per launch, giving rise to very small curls, winged and fairly compact. The lands are dry and enhance the wine quality.
