2015 Reguengo de Melgaco Alvarinho Vinho Verde - 93 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"This vineyard surrounds a 16th-century manor house, restored as a small hotel at the turn of the 21st century. The 18.5 acres of vines, alvarinho in light granite soils, were planted in 1997. They produced a sexy 2015, as brisk as a young Chablis (reductive in the best sense), with the languid rhythm of the waves on a summer beach, cresting to stone and lemon, then broadening out to Mandarin orange zest, the undulating wave repeated with each sip, then echoed in each breath, as it would be echoed by the meatiness of grilled octopus."
