Contacto Alvarinho is obtained from the noble Alvarinho grape variety, grown exclusively in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço. For the production of this wine vineyards alongside the river were selected at a low altitude and with deep soils with a high content of pebbles. The wine has complexity, minerality and the bitterness of Alvarinho. Pronounced intensity on the nose markedly mineral and slim. High aromatic concentration with a stony character. Elegant mouth with structure and a sharp acidity. Long finish with bitter citrus and mineral notes.
