Quinta de Santa Teresa Singular Vinho Verde 2018
Alexandre Gomez comes from a long line of farmers in the Baião area of the Minho in northern Portugal, famously the home of Vinho Verde. In 1991, Alexandre began planting a new vineyard of just 5 hectares dedicated to the region's native varieties, like the Alvarinho (known as Albariño over the border in Spain), Avessa, Arinto and Malvasía you find in this organic white blend. The 2018 vintage was hot and dry with much higher than average temperatures in August and September.
The wine has an aroma of flowers, lychees and citrus fruits. On the palate it presents good body and depth, the profile is silky and citrussy, smooth and captivating.
