Description

90 points Wine Spectator
"There's a flinty underpinning to this fragrant white, which shows a succulent range of ripe apricot and blood orange, white blossom, lemon peel and pickled ginger. Sleek and linear, with a hint of saline on the finish. Alvarinho and Trajadura. Drink now."

Vinous Reverie Notes
The cooperative Adega de Monção was created in 1958 with 25 growers. First harvest in 1962 included 66 growers. Today, the venture has blossomed to 1,720 members. The founding of Adega de Monção was inspired by the determination and spirit of cooperation of the legendary Deu-La-Deu Martins. During the fourteenth-century Fernandine Wars, Monção was the target of a long and painful siege by the Kingdom of Castile. Food was scarce but Deu-La-Deu Martins collected what little flour remained and baked as many loaves of bread as possible. Then, she climbed the wall and threw them at the enemy. The Castilians, incredulous at the apparent abundance of the Portuguese, conceded defeat. Tasting Notes: Alvarinho 85% and Trajadura 15%. Brilliant and bright aspects. Predominantly fruity character, notably the aromas of apricot and peach, resulting from the high percentage of Alvarinho. Flavor lingers in the mouth with the smoothness and freshness that only a Vinho Verde can offer.
