Aveleda Loureiro & Alvarinho is a blend made from the most loved varieties from the Vinho Verde Wine Region: the loureiro and the alvarinho. The night harvest allows the grapes to keep their freshness and, consequently, preserve their aromatic properties. When arriving at the vinification center, the grapes undergo soft pressing at low pressures. The alcoholic fermentation happens in stainless steel vats under strictly controlled temperatures to preserve the most typical aromas of the varieties. Fermentation happens in contact with lees in order to keep the freshness of the wine.

Tasting Notes

With pale yellow color and a beautiful crystalline rim, Aveleda Loureiro & Alvarinho is the definition of an harmonious wine: the exuberant floral and citric aromas of Loureiro blend perfectly with the velvet smooth body of the Alvarinho grape variety.
