2017 Reguengo de Melgaco Alvarinho Vinho Verde - ***** - Captain Cork

captain cook logo"First, enormously dense Riesling nose, as if that were a Mosel wine. Gorgeous! I smell yellow apple and lime. Then Pears and Bananas are added and it becomes clear: this is not a Moselaner. I take a sip and am being amazed. What a balanced, full-bodied, extracted and rich wine. I taste Banana, again Yellow Apple, the flesh of the Dragon-fruit, fresh green herbs and cool minerality. In the finish again a lot of freshness and the delicate bitterness of the dried Lemon peel. Noble and full of Alvarinho character - That's it !"
