NV Cava Reserva, Extremarium de Mont Marcal – Sparkling

Bright pale yellow in colour with fine, continuous bubbles. The bouquet is clean and fresh, with toasted notes such as coffee, coconut and vanilla, with peach, and grapefruit, mineral tones and white flowers. The palate is fresh, fruity, creamy and light, with body from its contact with the yeasts, and hints of raw almonds and hazelnuts.

2015 Contacto Alvarinho, Anselmo Mendes, Melgaço, Vinho Verde – White

White wine made from grapes of the Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. The vineyards are alongside the river, at low altitude, and the soils are deep with a high content of pebbles. The wine has complexity, a vegetable character, minerality and the bitterness of Alvarinho

2009 Quinta dos Avidagos, ’Vinhas Velhas’, Douro – Red

There’s a lovely spicy, savoury quality here: it’s ripe but restrained with a lovely warm spiciness on the palate. Quite stylish, in a traditional mould but with elegance & some oak influence.
