Trio by "Alvarinho" from Portugal

Alvarinho, the "Riesling" from Portugal.

Alvarinho means "the little white one from the Rhine". It is a very old grape variety. According to an unverifiable hypothesis, it was allegedly brought to Galicia by Cistercian monks from Germany or France via the Way of St. James between the 11th and 13th centuries. However, the assumption of a relationship with the Riesling is not tenable. According to DNA analyzes carried out in 2003, there is a close relationship with the Loureiro variety.

The early to medium-ripening vine is susceptible to powdery mildew and downy mildew and especially to mites, but is resistant to dryness and drought and is therefore ideal for dry soils.

It produces elegant, fresh white wines with an intense straw yellow color and citrus highlights. The aroma is intense, unmistakable, delicate and complex and ranges from quince, peach, banana, lemon, passion fruit and lychee (fruity character) to orange blossom and violet (floral character) to hazelnut and walnut (almond character) and honey (caramel character) . Its taste is complex, soft, round, harmonious, full-bodied and persistent.

The variety is mainly found in northern Portugal, where it is grown in the Vinho Verde area (Monção e Melgaço) and is often raised on pergolas (Ramadas). Alongside the Loureiro, it is the most important variety for the white variant there.
