big bag when you shop for this one... Clean, crisp, and fruity, this Vinho Verde is the perfect sipping wine. Thinking of having a fish-and-seafood-palooza? Look no further. If you're spending big on the lobster and shrimp, this terrific value will go easy on the budget... At this stupendous price, you can whip up a large pitcher of white sangria with ripe peach and green apple slices, floating next to green grapes and tiny slivers of ginger in addition to having a fresh glass on its own as a lovely aperitif. Bring out a dish of fried calamari with garlicky aioli dipping sauce. Your diners will love it. The citrusy acidity and beautiful fruit make this Quinta de Aveleda a perfect choice with fish, seafood, salads and much more. We love it with a Moroccan dish of grilled fresh sardines with fennel and preserved lemons. Estupenda! The acidity of this Portuguese is terrific opposite fried fish, so we suggest crisp catfish tenders with Cajun tartar sauce. Another favorite of ours is bowls of mussels steamed in white wine with garlic, fresh tomatoes and of course, salt and butter. Be sure to have some nice fresh bread to mop up the sauce! Open another couple of bottles and bring the house down with Meyer lemon shortcakes topped with Meyer curd.We're having some suprisingly hot days this end of September, and this wonderful white is a great way to cool off... When it gets cooler, it will just be a great vehicle for getting the festivities rolling.
Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Aveleda’s estate wine continues to evolve, this vintage combining the granitic power of Alvarinho (20 percent of the blend) with the lemon-lime freshness of Loureiro (80 percent, leaving trajadura aside). A textbook Vinho Verde with plenty of acidity tied to its grapefruit flavors, this will brighten any summer party, especially if there’s grilled fish on the menu." Aug 2014
Winery: "The floral notes of the “Loureiro” are merged to perfection with the fruit of the “Alvarinho”. The result is a complex, elegant wine with a long, persistent after-taste. Quinta da Aveleda is the ideal choice to accompany refined salads comprising seafood, goat cheese-based starters and dishes made from white meats such as turkey or chicken. It must be drunk very cold at a temperature of 6 to 8oC."
Trade Notes: Result of perfect harmony between technology and tradition, the Quinta da Aveleda is the true picture of the place that gave it its name. Wine produced from grape varieties Loureiro, and Alvarinho Trajadura. Presents a clear lemon color, limpid and slightly shiny. It is a very harmonious wine with fresh, fruity and delicate aroma, indicating the presence of tropical fruits and light floral notes. Long and persistent finish. Ideal as an aperitif or accompaniment to fish, seafood, salads or Italian cuisine."
