Aveleda (Vinho Verde)
Product not available in United States
Vinho Verde is a type of Portuguese wine that has been around since the Roman age. While its name may translate to "green wine", you do not need to worry, this wine is actually white. Vinho Verde is a young wine that is traditionally meant to be consumed immediately, without ageing. Aveleda S.A. is currently the largest producer and exporter of Vinho Verde in Portugal.
For its Quinta Aveleda 2017, a blend of Trajadura, Loureiro, and Arinto grapes are used. These grapes are native to the region, so in order to preserve their delicious, vibrant flavour, both the pressing and fermentation are done under controlled temperatures. The final wine may be young but still manages to be very balanced and smooth. Its citrus notes make it the perfect accompaniment for seafood. It is also refreshing enough to serve as an aperitif.
Aveleda S.A. has more than 140 years of experience in crafting fine wines. The company has been family-owned since founding, now under control of the fifth generation, and uses this experience to make Vinho Verdes that break out of the mould. While traditional Vinho Verdes are made to be enjoyed young, those from Aveleda age gracefully in the bottle to develop more layers of flavour and aroma. So, you can enjoy Quinta Aveleda 2017 immediately after buying or wait for it to mature further.
