Mineral and rich profile, with textured, almost candied orange peel. Bright acidity plays beautifully with this extended lees old-school Alvarinho to deliver another angle of this uniquely beautiful grape.
Since 1988, Quinta do Regueiro has been using old-school methods to produce some of the most prized Alvarinhos in Portugal. Having started with one single vineyard in the estate’s “backyard,” today, Quinta do Regueiro is producing approximately 40,000 bottles of Alvarinho (and blends).
The wine is a combination of two separate lots. The first, is semi-macerated on skins with extended lees contact. The second, is made like the estate’s 100% Alvarinho Reserva, with extended battonage. All fermentation is temperature-controlled and in stainless steel.
Pairs well with shellfish, vegetarian dishes, and appetizers and snacks.
