Rating: 88 Wine Enthusiast

Grape Variety: 100% Alvarinho.

Origin: Portalegre district, Alto Alentejo.

Ageing: Not aged in oak.

Alcohol: 13%.

Tasting Notes: "The Alvarinho grape, more at home in northern Portugal, makes a fine wine in the Alentejo hill country northeast of Lisbon. Here the flavors are tropical: ripe pineapple, a touch of spice and just the right amount of acidity. The wine will be better from 2017." --Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

Food Pairing: This Alvarinho from southern Portugal pairs well with spicy foods like chili, chipotle-flavoured dishes, and Buffalo chicken wings. Try with grilled fish; oysters, mussels, scallops and other shellfish; sushi; chicken salad; and yellow Thai curry.

Serving Temperature: 10C (chilled).
