ALVARINHO & TRAJADURA

Quinta da Lixa “Aromas das Castas” Alvarinho Trajadura 2016

Origin:
Vinho Verde, Portugal

Price: $14

Here's an eminently drinkable blend of Alvarinho and Trajadura from Vinho Verde, the Portuguese wine region that is all the rage of late. Winemaker Carlos Teixeira is a master at producing superior quality wines at bargain basement prices, and this one rates among his finest efforts. Flavors in evidence include orange blossom, lime, peaches and pears. Crisp and clean, this white wine strikes a balance between intense and insouciant.
