Let’s taste a very refreshing white wine today. This is the Jardim Secreto Premium wine, produced in the Vinho Verde wine region of Portugal.
Albenaz – Family of Great Wines – is a new exclusive brand of the Continente chain, which includes five wines of superior quality and which aims to captivate the Portuguese palate. With a range from four wine regions, the Albenaz brand presents true wine-growing experiences. One of them this Vinho Verde white wine.
The Albenaz range presents wines perfect for socializing at the table and special moments, with family or friends, given the highly gastronomic profile of its wines.
This white was exclusively made from the Alvarinho grape in the vintage of 2020.
Alvarinho is the most emblematic grape in Vinho Verde region, mostly in the Monção e Melgaço sub-region. The grape generally has a lower yield and can achieve higher alcohol levels. The grapes produce full-bodied, dry wines with complex, delicate, fresh aromas. It displays tropical aromas and an overall lemony character with characteristic minerality, slightly salty properties, and high acidity as well.
This wine presents a bright citrus color.
The wine has a fresh and fruity nose with medium intense aromas of citrus and tree fruits, lemon, green apple, melon and grapefruit. Characteristic aromas of minerality and slight saline.
Very good acidity on the palate and well-present citrus fruit notes of lemon zest, grapefruit and nectarine. Light, refreshing and easy-to-drink wine with a tasty persistent finish, alongside a dry mouthfeel.
Alcohol content: 12.5%
Excellent for enjoying on its own, but pairs well with seafood, light meats, or any fish dishes.
