Cinco Quintas Vinho Regional Minho Avicella 2017

Cinco Quintas Vinho Regional Minho Avicella 2017

In Portuguese, Cinco Quinta means “Five Estates,” which is appropriate for this winery as grapes for their wines are sourced from five family-owned vineyard properties all located near the city of Vizela. In 1990, José Borges built the Cinco Quintas winery and produced a small quantity of his wines. The freshness comes from the characteristics of the grapes, the granite soils, but also from the mild temperatures due to the moderate influence of the Atlantic Ocean. In 2014 Cinco Quintas launched the “Avicella” line of Vinho Verde wines, balancing the winemaking traditions of their ancestors with modern winemaking technology and methods. This Alvarinho Vinho Regional Minho is made from 100% Alvarinho grapes grown on Cinco Quintas estate vineyards in Vizela.

It displays all the classic characteristics of this Iberian varietal. It is a full-bodied, subtly fragrant white with complex but delicate aromas reminiscent of peach, lemon, passion fruit, lychee, orange zest, jasmine, orange blossom, and lemon balm. This wine is delicious now but can also age well, for ten years or more.
