Quinta de Santiago Alvarinho Loureiro
Third generation of the Santiago family are managing this beautiful boutique estate in Monçao, located on the Spanish / Portuguese border. The grapes for this wine are hand picked before being fermented at cool temperatures following which the wine is left on its lees for 5 months to add complexity and flavour prior to being bottled.
Aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits, it is dry, smooth, well balanced with refreshing citrus flavours.
Ideal as an aperitif, and to accompany shell fish, rice dishes and asian cuisine.
The grape variety Alvarinho is the same as the Spanish grape Albariño.
