Aveleda Vinho Verde White Portuguese Wine 750mL
Aveleda Vinho Verde White Portuguese Wine 750mL

"Aveleda selected the Loureiro, Trajadura and Arinto grapes from the best vineyards in the region. When the ideal maturation stage is reached, the grapes are brought to Aveleda where they are cooled before being pressed at low pressure. The fermentation, in stainless steel tanks, is carefully controlled at temperatures of 16-18ºC. The careful temperature control during the winemaking process produces a wine that is slightly citrine in color, clear and bright. It's a well balanced wine with a fresh and fruity aroma and a soft, silky finish. Ideal as an aperitif, with fish, seafood or salads." -The Winery

Bodega Cartuxa E A White - White Portuguese Wine
Bodega Cartuxa E A White - White Portuguese Wine

"70% Loureiro and 30% Alvarinho. On those nose there's a minerality and steeliness to the wine. Tighter aromas of pear, Granny Smith apple are more pronounced and the riper white stone fruit of the Loureiro takes more of a secondary role. Great underlying, balanced acidity on the palate. The Alvarinho adds a wonderful roundness and richness and fills out the palate beautifully. The fine minerality of this wine sits nicely below the surface and the finish is lingering and moreish." -The Winery

“The grapes are processed at the famous Cartuxa Winery, a former Jesuit house that was designated a national treasure in 1755. A wine press was already there in operation in 1776. In this historic setting the Eugenio de Almeida Foudation has invested in quality as well as preserving its heritage and the house boasts a sizeable modern winery. Continuous research and development devoted to acquiring knowledge of the vines, the grape varieties and wine making techniques have resulted in wines with character and a distinctive style." - The Winery

Howard's Folly Sonhador Vinho Verde  Portuguese White Wine 750mL
Howard's Folly Sonhador Vinho Verde Portuguese White Wine 750mL

100% Alvarinho (Albarino)

By Wine Writer Tom Cannavan.

"The Howard in question is an English businessman Howard Bilton, who has partnered winemaker David Baverstock (of Portugal’s Esporão winery) in this project. This is a Vinho Verde from the north of Portugal made from the Alvarinho grape – the same grape as Spain’s Albariño, which is found just across the border in Rias Baixas. This is a thoroughly modern Vinho Verde which is weightier and higher in alcohol than the tradional wines (13% ABV) and which is simply exquisite: the nose is flooded with delicate floral and more direct lime and lemon fruit, with a fine hint of salty minerals too. On the palate it fills the mouth with flavour that is substantial and richly textured, yet that saline touch and the tangy core of zesty fruit is mouthwatering and deliciously drinkable. It is long, beautifully made and an excellent example of the New Vinho Verde."

Quinta Aveleda Alvarinho White Portuguese Wine 750 mL

Rated 89 points eRobertParker.com #224 Apr 2016

"The 2015 Alvarinho (with just "Aveleda" on the front label) is unoaked and comes in at 4.5 grams per liter of residual sugar--not enough to make it seem sweet, although it is a bit fruitier than the Branco blend, also reviewed. Showing fine depth for this inexpensive price category, this has a fuller body than the Branco, but less perceptible acidity. It is more of a typical table wine than an invigorating porch-sipper. It is very fine this year and another terrific bargain from Aveleda. As noted elsewhere, these can actually hold better than one might think. But there is no reason to wait and storage conditions in the marketplace do not always equate to what the winery can show me in Portugal. So, don't hesitate to drink it young." -Mark Squires 2015 Quinta da Aveleda Alvarinho

"This wine remains a benchmark for the Vinho Verde region, even though the producers have now recast it as a Minho wine. It is steely, tight and crisp, with a touch of creaminess that gives it a more rounded aftertaste. Drink now through 2015." - Roger Voss

Quinta da Murta Bucelas Arinto 2013 White Portuguese Wine
Quinta da Murta Bucelas Arinto 2013 White Portuguese Wine

2012 Vintage: "Exuberant and fresh nose with notes of lemon, lime, apple, tropical fruit and some floral and mineral background evidence. Body well balanced and creamy. Long and persistent finish. To enjoy at any time either in “primeur” or in “vin de garde” with aromas developing years after years. Ideal with any type of raw or grilled seafood and fish, lean meats, pasta, noodle and exotic spicy cuisine." - The Vineyard "Arinto is a unique cepage whose origin is Bucelas, Portugal. It grows in medium-sized bunches, tightly packed with small grapes. The characteristics of the taste of Arinto are intense yet discreet, aromatic, citrus, apple and tropical with stylish texture and firmness. It finishes long with rewarding flavors. Characterized by its lively high acidity and freshness, even in hot climate, giving a great vibrant white and sparkling wine full of character, capable for long guard, but also delicious young. Arinto develops with age a bouquet of lemon and vanilla softwood. Grapes become greatest in its natural terroir Bucelas." - The Vineyard

Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Vinho Verde Portugese White Wine 750 mL
Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Vinho Verde Portugese White Wine 750 mL

tasting notes: The Quinta das Arca "Arca Nova" Vinho Verde is mostly Loureiro (50%) and Arinto (40%) with 10% Trajadura. It comes in at 10.5% alcohol and 6 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is, in general terms, what people expect from the region: a bit of fizz, crisp, light and sunny, and maybe sometimes just a hint of sugar. The fizz here is not overdone and the sugar is modest, nicely balanced by the acidity. This classic style is very well-executed. At a nice price, it should make a lot of folks happy on a warm summer day. Needless to say, it is best drunk young, no matter how long it holds. Being young, fresh and exuberant is what it does best.

The Monteiro family owns four wine estates in Portugal, three in the Vinho Verde region and one in Alentejo. The family company, Quinta das Arcas was founded in 1985 by Antonio Esteves Monteiro and is headquartered in Vinho Verde. Whilst the family produces olive oil, brandy, liquor and cheese, their main business is wine – through Quinta das Arcas they produce Conde Villar and Tapada de Villar. The family's holdings in Vinho Verde are in Valongo and Penafiel – 300 acres are planted to indigenous regional varietals.
