Serious alvarinho, with tons of chalky minerality. Tasty!

Vino Verde in HD thanks to some skin contact and serious winemaking. Amazing depth of flavor for a wine in the low $20 range.

Wonderful aromatics and body. Apricots, mandarin, great purity. Just lovely with balanced acidity.

Apricot and peach aromas and flavors supported by spice, wet granite and lively acidity, finishing with a hint of RS.

This won't help you at all: it taste exactly as an ice cream (though a less sweet take, obviously) I used to love as a kid.
