Casa Santos Lima Alvarinho 2020 / 2021
Stunning medium bodied dry white made from Portugal's delicious Alvarinho grape, best known and loved for its lovely lemon flavours and refreshing depths of dry, savoury aroma notes.
This is an excellent example of a great white to drink with seafood, fresh or dried.
The hallmark of Alvarinho is its high acidity, which provides this wine with its innate and deliciously succulent freshness - something this tasty little white has in spades. It's medium bodied and totally dry with great character. Portuguese wines are on trend globally, thanks to the discovery of the country's vast range of interesting indigenous grape varieties, mostly red but with increasing volumes of great whites too, such as this wine, which is produced by Casa Santos Lima. This large family owned winery makes a vast range of wines in Portugal and we stock a fascinating and delicious selection here at Regional.
