A unique microclimate influences the growth of these Alvarinho grapes. The Melgaço region, at the northernmost point of Portugal, is protected by a range of mountains which create the perfect rainfall, temperature and sunshine conditions needed for the ideal ripening of the Alvarinho grapes.

The finish is slightly vegetal, yet silky and smooth. By gently stirring the bottle before serving, incorporating the fine lees, the wine can have even more volume in the mouth.
