93 Points, Wine EnthusiastBrighten your day with this Aveleda Solos de Granito Alvarinho. It’s got great chops, beautiful minerality and zingy acidity, and delicious citrus and white fruit too. No shrinking violets here… Fill your glasses to go with grilled or fried fish tacos with pickled onions, a generous dollop of guacamole, and your favorite taco sauce. Mussels steamed in white wine, garlic and fennel will delight too. Make sure you’ve got some crusty bread available to soak up the tasty broth! And if you’ve got some time on your hands, make it a smoked haddock and leek risotto. You will be so glad you did.Wine Enthusiast: “Much of the Minho/Vinho Verde region sits on granite bedrock. That gives a strongly mineral edge to this wine, offering a tight texture and apple and kiwi flavors, with a squeeze of lemon at the end. The wine is young and needs to age further. Drink from 2023. Suitable for vegans.” Jul 2022Winery: “Bright pale yellow hue, Aveleda Solos de Granito has an exuberant aromatic profile where citrus fruits, green apples and mineral notes are abundant. The mouth has a strong mineral attack, followed by a crisp acidity and aromas of ripe grapefruit and green peaches. With a vigorous structure, this Alvarinho varietal is concentrated, direct and straight to the point. Incredibly long finish. Pair with salmon with mango sauce, seafood curry, rich (Greek & Mediterranean) salads and soft cheeses.”Bottle750ml, corkVarietal100% AlvarinhoAlcohol13.0%Total Acidity6.0g/LResidual Sugar
