You will like to know that...

Aveleda S.A., a family-owned Portuguese company which is now in the hands of the fifth generation, was founded in 1870. The company now holds the prestigious position as the largest producer and exporter of Vinho Verde in Portugal. This type of Portuguese wine, whose name actually means "green wine" is a young white wine, which may have been around since the time of the Romans. To craft their white wines, Aveleda blends their generations of knowledge and experience with the innovation that wine experts can bring to the table.

The grapes for Quinta Aveleda 2018 are soft pressed and fermented at a low temperature to ensure the purity of flavour comes through in the final product. This white wine is made with a blend of Loureiro and Alvarinho grapes. The Loureiro grapes bring the floral and citrus tones to the wine while the Alvarinho grapes offer a velvety smooth sensation on the tongue.

While traditional Vinho Verde wines are crafted to be consumed while unaged, those from Aveleda are specially designed to age in the bottle. When this happens, they will develop more complex aromas and flavours. The wine is, of course, still perfect to consume after purchase without any further ageing. It is full of character and will pair excellently with salads, fresh vegetables, spicy food, and fish dishes, including sushi.

Quinta Aveleda 2018

91 pts Wine & Spirits - Harmonious wine in which the floral aromas of the Loureiro grape variety are merged to perfection with the tropical notes of the Alvarinho. The result is a complex, elegant wine with a long, persistent after-taste in the mouth.
