Alvarinho, Portugal, Nortico 2021

Availability: In stock

100% Alvarinho.

This is a fresh white wine with the characteristic bright acidity and aromas of peach and grapefruit. Nortico is from tiny vineyard plots in Moncao and Melgaço, on the border with Spain's Galicia province - the best Alvarinho-growing area in Portugal. Sustainably grown vines (small plots called jardins) planted from 1910-2005 in granite soil at 20-250 m (68-820 ft) elevation.

Unlike other wines from the larger Vinho Verde area, Nortico has no added CO2, making for a richer, fuller, well-balanced wine that showcases its maritime influence with a kiss of salinity on the finish.
