Vinho Verdes like Quinta do Regueiro are a rare find.  high quality for value; characterful now, but has plenty of potential to age. Great Vinho Verde ages! Unlike most mass-produced Vinho Verdes that are fruity, cheep-and-cheerful and made bubbly with the addition of CO2, Quinta do Regueiro is not sparkling. Regueiro 100% Alvarinho Vinho Verde weaves richness and racy structure, and pronounced aromas of white peach, green apple, with a zesty, lemon- and mineral-driven palate.  creamy finish with plenty of acidity, length, and finesse. The depth of flavor in Regueiro is the legacy of grapevines up to 60 years old. So well woven with richness and lengthy acidity, this wine will develop in the bottle for a minimum of a decade. Great Vinho Verde ages!

Vinho Verdes like Regueiro's are a rare find: high quality for value; characterful now, but has plenty of potential to age. So well woven with richness and lengthy acidity, this wine will develop in the bottle for a minimum of a decade. It comes from the classic, and highest quality, Vinho Verde regions Monção and Melgaço in Northern Portugal. During fermentation this bottling spends 6 hours on its lees with regular batonage. The result is an elegant wine that balances freshness and creaminess. Will pair with any manner of seafood dish, chicken and cream sauces. Regueiro Alvarinho is gaining notoriety at wine competitions in Switzerland, The UK, Portugal and Germany.
