Crisp lemon and lime citrus flavours with mineral notes and a hint of delicate white flowers. A very elegant wine with great acidity and long finish.
Spanish white wine from Ribeiro in Galicia North West Spain, made with Treixadura.
Named in honour of the oenologist’s grandfather, Avelino, Quinta do Avelino was created. The family’s history of wine making goes back more than a hundred years with the fourth generation now in charge. Their only wine is made from 100% Treixadura, a white grape variety found in the Ribeiro region, grown on nearly three hectares cultivated naturally and hand harvested. The grape must is drawn and fermented and very low temperatures to keep the aromatic concentration at its most pure and is then aged on the lees.
