This Portuguese Alvarinho (Albariño) bursts with crisp, complex flavours and minerality.

Real Companhia Velha is the oldest and most emblematic wine company in Portugal, having recently celebrated over 260 years of existence and uninterrupted activity in the production of Port Wine. Founded in 1756 by the Royal Charter of D. José I, King of Portugal, the importance of this Ex-Majestic Company was seen as being a valuable service to the community. At some of best Quintas in the Douro, they have been able to preserve and honour the tradition of winemaking while investing in the future, with constant modernisation and experimentation at their vineyards.

Tasting Note: The wine shows fruity aromas and tempting floral notes. The combination of fruity aromas and a palate highlighted by crisp acidity and flavourful minerality make this Alvarinho a classic example of the variety. A great spring/ summer wine with bright fruity aromas of orange blossom with crisp acidity and delicious minerality.
