2019 LUA CHEIA Maria Bonita Nostalgia Alvarinho 75cl (Vinho Verde, Portugal)
Style - Aromatic
Grapes - 100% Alvarinho
Tasting - When I saw Maria on the label and tasted this wine, I found myself in a 1920's speakeasy during prohibition picturing a sea of hedonistic smiles fill the room. Intense grapefruit and tropical notes jump out at you, whilst the palate is refreshing with a touch of creamy richness, like Maria herself.
FYI: Skins are left in contact with the wine during fermentation, as that maximises the delicious aromas.
