Alvarinho Pouco Comum 2020

Product description

The Meirles family has long owned vineyards around Vila da Lixa, selling their fruit to others, but in 1886 they decided to start making their own wines. They hired well-known oenologist Carlos Teixeira in the early 2000s to over see the project. They now have 52 hectares of vines across 6 estates. This cuvée is named Pouco Comum, translating as 'unusual'. Though fermented and aged in stainless, this alvariñho from Minho has seen additional time on lees, giving a very creamy feel to the palate. Baked pear, yellow apple, green melon glides along the palate, finishing with gentle spiced notes. Try this if you're looking for an albariño with more body, but still with a great deal of freshness, to partner with your white fish or spring risottos.
