Quintas de Melgaco (QM) 2013 Alvarinho Vinho Verde, $19.99-$23.99, 92 points, poured a rainbow of gold colors with shimmering green hues (quite spectacular).
Similarly spectacular was the rainbow of floral and melon aromas, some pome-sweet and others woody, but all intoxicatingly beautiful.
Full-bodied with good acidity enhancing all the rich flavors of the aromas as well as the undercurrent of citrus notes.
Finished long on an opulent olive oil texture, the trailing palate, easy, yet enduring spice notes, and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
The texture says sweet, but this is a dry white wine, and was perfectly pair-able with sardines and crackers.
I must admit that the bottle design presented me with a major photographic challenge, thus the two pictures to help my viewers sort-out the label.
