Vinho Verde Alvarinho Contacto 2021

This wine, a 100% Alvarinho, hails from vineyards nestled by the river, where deep, pebble-rich soils meet low altitudes. Named 'Contacto', it embraces the unique touch of skin contact during fermentation, coupled with three months of ageing on fine lees, stirred with care through regular bâtonnage. A rare process for white wines, it imparts a rich structure and creamy texture to its ripe apricot and peach notes, enlivened by a signature mineral smokiness.

It's texture and ripe aromatics will pair well with seafood or Asian dishes.
