Azevedo Vinho Verde Alvarinho Reserva 2022

The Alvarinho grapes for the Azevedo Vinho Verde Reserva are sourced from prime vineyard sites in the Vinho Verde region located slightly further inland and more sheltered from the cooling influence of the Atlantic. This warmer microclimate allows the Alvarinho grape to reach optimum levels of ripeness with great aromatic intensity balanced by its signature acidity. Upon arrival at the Quinta de Azevedo winery, the Alvarinho grapes were gently destemmed and pressed in a pneumatic press. A short period of pre-fermentation maceration on the skins added extra aromatic intensity to the wine. After fermentation, the wine remained in stainless-steel tanks for four months, during which time the lees were stirred to add textural complexity to the palate. On the nose the wine boasts intense aromas of nectarine, apricot and mango along with floral nuances. Full flavoured and rich on the palate but balanced by a lively acidity which carries the ripe fruit flavours onto the lingering finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
